    I see a yarn order in my future, so I can do an actual comparison, as there are a few I have not tried yet. Very fun poll :)

    I’m disturbed that Aloft didn’t win over Alpaca Cloud. The game’s gotta be rigged … /:-\

    I’ve learned I need to buy more Knit Picks yarn as I haven’t made things with several of these. And here I was trying to reduce my stash.

  24. Carole / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    Fun!

  25. Laura / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    This is fun, I see some new yarn to try, I prefer to be able to touch and see the yarn but so far every new yarn I order I have not been disappointed with,

  26. Anne Grimaldi / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    Great idea and fun! I am addicted to lace weight, but saw a couple in a whole different light. I can see new projects in my future!

  27. Robin Allen / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    I’m predicting WOTA vs. Comfy in the final showdown.

    Not letting me “vote” on my iPhone. Sad panda.

  35. Peggy / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    Love, love, love

  37. Mickey / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    Hmm…A felted “We’re #1″ finger would be much more comfortable than those foam fingers.

  38. Arden Allen / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    All yarns are happy yarns but some feel better on your skin or through your fingers and some are warmer/cooler depending on season or location.

  42. Linda Cannon / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    I would work with any of the yarns listed. Although any Wool of the Andes is good.

    That’s harder than choosing basketball, they could all be favorites.

  48. CJ David / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    I often get the yarn and then decide on a pattern that I love. It’s an ADVENTURE!

  49. Ruth / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    All your yarns are so good, that it’s hard to choose.

  50. Martha Johnson / March 20, 2014 / Reply

    It appears I may need to try some other yarns then the ones I have chosen.
