A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Totally Nuts

Stand back, people. I'm cranky and I've got a full inbox.

Last week we all grumbled about $50 for Koigu cashmere. Now Lion Brand expects knitters to fork over $40 for their cashmere. Their newsletter describes the yarn as "hand-painted" which I seriously doubt. Their website describes it as "hand-dyed."

Don't want cashmere? Well then there's a silk/mohair blend that's also $40. Looks like a Silk Rhapsody knock off. Why not buy the real thing for the same price with much better colors?
