wasting time

Because the baby fell asleep and Richard isn't home from work yet:

Using the top 100 yarns on Ravelry (by number of projects):
Bold the ones you’ve used and would use again;
Cross out the ones you’ve used and would not use again;
and Italicize the ones you’ve never tried, but would like to.
(and i'm doing nothing to the ones that i'm not even interested in)

Add comments as desired, and then pass the meme along to 5 knitters/crocheters. Link back to this post and to the person who tagged you.

Am I a bad knitter friend if I admit I've only heard of about half of those yarns, or maybe less?

That is a fun list! I'll have to do that. It will lead to a great wishlist;)
