[color=indigo][/color] Hi Everyone
was curious if anyone has run across knitters who have yarn snobbery? I work with a knitter who would never knit with acrylics or acrylic blends, or yarn bought at craft chain stores. And the local yarn shop that has high end brands has employees that were horrified when I said I got needles and yarn at AC Moore! Mind you, this store was marking down all their Debbie Bliss because they don’t feel it’s “good enough”. My impression was that Debbie Bliss brand is popular and good quality.
I’m fairly new to knitting (started about 7 months ago), so I never realized there being such strong feelings! I have to say that I knit a large afghan in Lion Brand chenille that came out great, and is holding up very well. I have recently purchased some silk yarns for big bucks… but hope they hold up as well as I would expect them to for the price!
What are your thoughts on this?
