Admiring and Loving Yarns

So often my posts are about what I’ve been making or want to make, but what about you? So, I shared two questions with my friends and I hope you’ll comment to keep the discussion going. I asked my knitting friends which yarns they’re admiring and loving right now and this is what they said…
