It depends on who I'm knitting for as to whether I use natural fibers or not. Right now I'm knitting a felted backpack for my DD so that obviously is wool. I'm also working on sweaters for my 3 y/o boys for next fall. Knowing how they are, I'm doing that in Lion Brand (Vanna's Choice) acrylic. I need it to be durable, washable, and cheap so I won't
if they do something to it. A woman my mom works with is due w/her 2nd baby in a couple of months. She's seen my knitting and wants me to do something for the baby but I'm also quite sure she won't care for it well. She'll also get something in acrylic. Anything for me - bring on the good stuff!
