Just to let you guys know that Martha's airing a yarn show. As part of it, I think she's going to the Lion Brand factory to have designers show how they come up with new yarns. Just an FYI to set your DVR's if interested...
I can go for the Lion Brand Wool Eze. It's not all that bad. I can't manage the all synthetic stuff however. They do have one that's 100% wool too I think.
I've used Wool Ease on a couple of projects and I think it's OK. If it's used on an afghan that doesn't get used or washed that often and it's been fine. I recently made a rug out of some of the leftover afghan yarn and it's already starting to get fuzzy just from regular use and it's only been a couple of months. I haven't used any of their 100% wool.
It was totally worth it, just to see my friend Nathan Vincent!

He had some cool projects on the show. Thanks for the URL to his site.
I'd love to watch it...but I don't have cable...and am not sure when it's on...
wasn't Martha's Prison Poncho lion's brand???
Call me a yarn snob..... but I think I can give this one a miss lol
Thanks for the information Michael. I'll be sure to check that out! "All I ask is that you treat me no differently than you would Martha!"

And then she's going to knit a condo. :-)
Grace and Peace,
When is it scheduled? I wanna see! I wanna see! Oh....the title....um.....I knew I saw "tomorrow" somewhere......never mind...
I think the airtime varies by area, so check your local listings. But, it airs tomorrow, Monday.
