Look at my beautiful Baby O. Isn't she the most exquisitely gorgeous thing *EVER*?!?!!

Went to Wildfiber in Santa Monica yesterday, to check out the sale. Why is it that all the stuff *I* want is never on sale? Anyway, the store is GORGEOUS. Quite roomy, well-stocked and worth the drive (actually was less of a problem than I anticipated, despite it being a hot sunday afternoon). The people were okay; not as snobby as some, but certainly not the welcoming as the Friendliest LYS of All Time. I ended up getting some 100% cotton to use on toys and such, but the yarn is so danged harsh I HATE IT. But I'm skeered to try and return the stuff. Eh. The problem is, Dr. Doug's new wifee, Dster, has a birthday coming up; I wanted to try a pair of Spun Mag's pedicure socks, but the Dster is *DEATHLY* allergic to wool. So, I figured I'd try cotton, having worked with other brands of cotton in the past that knit up nicely, but this is like knitting with friggin steel wire. OHDEARLAWDINHEAVEN. The only reason I got it was (1) it was on sale; and (b) it was the right color. Let that be a lesson. If something is on sale, there's probably a reason. This stuff makes barbed wire seem like the softest mohair. Is it because its mercerized? Would that make a difference? I washed a swatch (ME!!! SWATCH!!!) in hot water and dishsoap, hoping that might soften it up. No such luck. This stuff will make a brilliant bbq grill scrubber. And the worst part is, because I really liked the colors and sheen (Ohhh!! Pretty shiny things!!!), I bought SIX balls. Oy vey.

So, I'm thinking, maybe not this particular brand of cotton. I hate to go and spend more money, but I'm just not liking the "drape" (or lack thereof) of this yarn. Not even for the toys. :( Maybe a nice linen. . . (since it wasn't on sale, anyway).

I did, however, also pick up a lovely angora/silk blend, just for my pleasure.

She's so cute. I love the hair.

I'm sorry you bought yarn that you hate. You should definitely return it and get something you like much better. Your hands will thank you.

She's adorable!

Mercerized should not make a difference. It's the fiber itself. Which brand is it? Cotton can be sketchy to work with.

Reynolds Saucy is the worst in terms of lack of softness imho, but it's great for structure.

Blue Sky cotton is really lovely. I kind of want to marry it.

Don't feel weird about going into Wild Fiber. Just walk right in with an attitude and give it back to 'em! Exchange the stuff you don't like for something faboo.
I work near the store, so just because it's close to my office, I go there once in awhile. They do have an awesome inventory. Just pretend that the people that work there are inferior ('cause they are)!
