For my FFBE spoiler:
I wanted to love Kureyon, and I have some Silk Garden from a swap pal I hope to knit up sooner rather than later. I love the stripes, and I think now that I know more about felting, my first two bags – Chan and Booga, in Kureyon – would have been a bit tighter and thus, I’d be more excited about the results. So, it is indeed the KNITTING with Kureyon that I hate. I also can’t imagine wearing the stuff, or curling up under it. I hear Silk Garden is far better in the knitting with and touchability in the final product, so I do want to give it a whirl.
In fact, I can’t stop buying striped yarn, especially the self-striping kind. Part of its charm is my lack of confidence with color work, but it’s also just a little Chan will never be a dyer mystery, watching the colors ooze into stripes while I just do my thing with the needles.
A shorter answer? If you’re willing to knit with Kureyon for me, I’m sure I’d love it.
