I firmly believe in choosing the absolute best knitting yarn you can afford, as this makes the most rewarding partnership between a knitter and her/his knitting. With this in mind I boldly state:
Even novice knitters deserve cashmere, silk, kid mohair, quiviut and buffalo down.
Even though I enjoy fine things, I refuse to look down my nose at Wal-Mart acrylic. In my world, there is room for both. Grandma taught me crochet using Red Heart, and my all-time favorite workhorse mittens, made by my mother-in-law, are acrylic!
I love my life, my husband, my daughter, my family (yes Noah and Zoe, this means you.), and my friends. I try not to take myself too seriously.
