The Good, the Bad, and the Really, Really Ugly

The Good

They are putting out an organic cotton yarn and a cashmere yarn, and neither of them contain any acrylic. It almost makes up for the Fancy Fur and the Fun Fetti. Almost.


The Bad

Jiffy. The “Mohair-Look” yarn. (I would call it the “My-Cat-Ate-This-Yarn-And-Then-Puked-It-Back-Up-So-Now-It’s-All-Fuzzy-And-Limp” yarn, but whatever.)And boy, they’ve got a couple colorway gems. I present to you:


El Paso. See above comment on cat puke.



Salem. I wonder, when they named this colorway “Salem,” what Salem were they thinking of? The “Kill the witches! Huzzah!” Salem?


There must be some other Salem. A happier, nicer, more pastel-colored Salem I don’t know about.

And finally…

The Really, Really Ugly


“A new style of blanket with armholes.” For the love of all that is woolly. All is lost.

Oh Lion Brand, thou art strange.

    I think if you total it out, it ends up negative. Let me see. . .
    The good – 2/2 points for trying
    The bad – 1/2 point a good-ish fibre, deduct two for crap colors
    The really, really ugly – 0/2 for color and style
    Deduct 1 for cheezy name
    Let’s see now. . . 0/6 by my standards. Not quite negative, but still a zero

    Has Miss Elizabeth-BK4K written back yet?
