Dear Acrylic Yarn,
I would like to offer you a heartfelt apology. I know I have been less than charitable about you in the past, and would like to clear the air between us.
Please understand that I meant no personal insult by my comments. I was blinded by my own prejudice. I have scoffed at yarn lacking natural fibers. I have laughed at Red Heart Super Saver and rolled my eyes at Caron Simply Soft. I have never given you, Acrylic Yarn, the time of day.
This last week and a half that we’ve spent together has been wonderful. I picked you up out of desperation- the Ice Storm was coming, and I didn’t have enough sock yarn to keep me entertained while I was stuck inside. You were the only yarn I could find within walking distance, and I was desperate. It was with trepidation that I purchased you, after all, could yarn that cost only $5.99 per pound really be worth it? Could I really make a worthwhile sweater out of acrylic?
I should never have questioned you. You are softer than wool, and are knitting up into a lovely dense fabric. Because you come in such large quantities, I haven’t had to worry about joining in new skeins of yarn. And, my sweater is going to be wonderfully cozy and warm, and totally washable.
Thank you, Acrylic Yarn, for giving me a second chance. Thank you for showing me my mistakes, and please forgive my ignorance. I now know better than to be so judgmental against you.
My sincerest apologies,
