I’m the girl with the massive headgear, bottle glasses and acne.
Ok…so someone SOMEONE PLEASE tell me…what is the deal with Cotton Ease?
**(By the way – when Googling “Cotton Ease” don’t accidentally type “Bottom Ease.” You won’t get the results you were expecting. Trust me.)**
Ok…it’s a Cotton/Poly worsted weight blend. Well…so is Rowan Calmer. So WHY the frezny over this Lion Brand yarn. I mean…it’s LION BRAND! Lion Brand – the Duke of bargin bin acrylics. (Obviously, Red Heart is the KING…so Lion Brand is relegated to a lower tier royalty position.) Now, I’m the first to admit I’m a fiber snob. Synthetics are for reinforcing socks to me. But I’ve been branching out and have been picking up some of the nice new blends that are coming out. BUT IT’S LION BRAND! I just don’t get it. Of course, I’ve never actually seen the yarn first hand (apparently the CE Frenzy has hit the Seattle area because I can’t find any) so I’m willing to listen if someone can convince me this is THE yarn to knit with.
But now it seems like everyone on the internet has it and since I have none I’m starting to feel like I’m in 3rd grade and the only one without the coolest new toy. You know, in the world of knitting…those with Cotton Ease are the cheerleaders and I’m the one that doesn’t realize I have toilet paper stuck to the bottom of my posture-correcting shoes.
Cotton Ease – you are my Tamogatchi-Cabbage Patch Kid-Talking Elmo-Furby grown up popularity hell. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
