Valuable Yarn Guide...
On my bookshelves is a 15 year old copy of Your Valuable Yarn Guide, a rather rough looking publication with an orange paper cover containing vital statistics of most of the commercial knitting yarns in production at that time. Now it is sadly out of date. Not just because it doesn't contain all of the (crappy) novelty yarns we've been deluged with...but the put-ups and other specs. on some of the old standard yarns have changed (like Cascade 220, Galway, etc.)
However we now have: Yarndex - the Yarn Directory!
I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else, so I thought to toss that bit of info out into blogdom. That is all....for now.
