Darn you people!
Here I was totally content with the Acrylic yarn that I had grown so used to useing. Then I joined up here. After reading all of the posts about all the great yarns out there I decided to treat myself to some decadance yarn from Knitpicks. Well I recieved it today and am offically over my enjoyment of Acrylic yarn. That stuff is soooo soft and lovely! I haven't even tried a swatch yet. I am going to roll it into a ball tonight once my kids go to bed and play tomorrow. :drooling:

Just wanted you to know that I was blissfully ignorant before I joined up here , but you all have ruined that for me

Glad we could help!

As KK said yesterday - we're a great bunch of enablers!

What are you going to turn that lovely yarn into?
