I have just completed these cute Ugg Boots for a friends yet to be born baby boy! They were easy to knit and I have used good quality New Zealand sheep wool!!
They have been knitted with what we refer to as double knit or 8 ply wool.
I am waiting to see them on the child. :-)
I've feared this disease for quite some time, about as long as I've been knitting, in fact. Denial, bargaining, natural alternatives- none of it has seemed to help. The simple fact is this- I have yarnsnobery.
