Apparently there is another great divide in the universe of crafty needlework shit. Not only is it crochters vs knitters BUT . . . . it's also acrylic vs wool (or anything else that is 'natural'). I saw a 'warning' posted on someone's project page about how acrylic baby blankets are evil and should not be used without supervision - no having an acrylic blanket with a baby at night, for instance.
Because if there's a fire, wool is flame retardant, but acrylic will burn and melt to the baby. Very inspiring, that. Especially when you , as a wool-user, go around posting on other people's project pages about the evils of acrylic. :P
Here's my latest baby blanket in 100% Acrylic. Because I don't like my friends, I hate their babies. :P
