Of course I kept reading your thread title as "lame", you know, not "la-may" but as in pathetic and undesirable. I kept thinking, "dang, just cuz you don't like glitter yarns it doesn't mean you have to call them lame!"
There is this great new yarn I bought when I was in Indy. It's called "Bright" and it's by YarnArt. It is 90 grams, 371 yards. I think it would look really nice being carried along with another yarn that had a halo. But yeah, best used as a carry-along. Also there's Rowan Lurex, which is softer, but pricier. I guess it would be good for lace.
