I was trying to buy a ball of white Sugar ‘n Cream the other day.  The only one I could find at JoAnn’s was this:

WP_20140620_001Can you read the label?  It says “Sugar ‘n Cream Scents.”  It’s scented yarn.  What terrible fever dream birthed this idea?  It smells like a mix between that stinky aisle in Wal-Mart where they keep the candles and a nursing home.  (Or, as the folks at Lily claim, “Powder,”  whatever the heck that means.)

It’s pretty much the worst thing I’ve seen in knitting in a long time, and I hope it goes away really quickly.  Would you ever knit with scented yarn?
