Rising Costs

20130209-113709.jpg

Every place you look things either cost more, are in a smaller package, cheapened in quality or all of the above. Personally I prefer quality remain the same. I am disappointed when finding more knots and flaws in yarn. Nor would I want them to start selling smaller skeins. I’d like the same quality and will decide if I can afford the price.

As I am working with Fixation I am getting frustrated. Last ball had a knot and 2 flaws. This ball has had two knots so far. I know, ‘ knots happen, blah blah blah…..’. I hope this is a temporary issue they are having. It is one of my go to baby yarns. And taking the knot out throws off the repeat and a pair of baby socks or mittens. As I knit through my supply I will hope for the best.

Speaking of the best, I have decided DyakCraft’s ‘price increase’ really is no big deal. (Old news, but I blogged about it before and I realized how silly it was.). First everything is going up. My next go to needle is now nearly $30 a set. Making $18-20 for theirs quite reasonable. (Apples to apples. Other lengths and such are more.).

Plus I buy in sets. (0-3, 4-9). Saving a bit per size. And now, if I read it right, sets come with a storage roll. I need more needles and this is just what I need to place my order. I know the quality I will get, the price is competitive, and I may get something ‘extra’.

If you knit with Fixation I would love to know what you are finding. And what you are making. I love this yarn.

Now I am off to order still more needles. My quest to finish more and start less is futile. As is not loosing my working needle.

Hope your week has fiber in it.
