Rant...you've been warned

I guess if you can only do garter stitch, you have to have erratically spun yarn in order to keep your interest up...http://www.pluckyfluff.com/stuff.html
(Okay, there's some crochet and stockinette stitch in there, too, but nothing that I'd consider even mildly interesting, pattern-wise.)
shows the only crocheting I've done with the 'novelty' yarns, and I was really quite pleased with the results. But, I used the yarn as an accent, not the yarn for the main fabric.
It IS a boring pattern, naught but single and double crochet, but then, the pattern wasn't my focal point here.
And sometimes that's totally appropriate--I'm working on a garter stitch multi-directional scarf from some Noro Silk Garden because I want to showcase the color.
It just bugs the ever-loving shit out of me that she's selling a garter stitch purse with thrifted handles (because that's what "vintage" seems to mean these days) for almost a hundred dollars. And it looks like it's made from DRYER LINT.
At first glance I thought it was scrumbled, some of which I like. But the closeup showed fuzz, not stitches. umm, ick. I can't imagine anyone actually *using* that as a purse, and if you wouldn't use it, what's the point?
