Last week was very happy for me – I got some new yarns to work on new knitting ideas. So today I had to organize my stash, because our tiny apartment is not a good place to storing them 🙂
When I started knitting years ago, I mainly bought cheap acrylics for knitting socks, hats and mittens. Partly because I didn’t have much money to spend on yarn, but most importantly I didn’t understand the difference between acrylics and high quality natural yarns.
Now I better spend on quality, because the knits fit better and last longer. Koigu has been my favorite for several years now, mostly because of their gorgeous hand painted colors. I also have a fantastic co-operation with them, I have designed two garments for their knitting magazine.
