This is because of an entry on one of the spinning groups here on LJ. I've ranted about this before...but, rather than argue with someone, I'll post this here, in my own space. If you're not into fiber, you might wanna skip this.

It's sad that this topic keeps coming up....I am hoping that a lot of these beginners (for it seems that a lot of the art yarn spinners ARE beginners) will decide that they want to make lasting items and improve their spinning. Until then, us "normal" spinners are going to have to keep fighting the good fight to prove that handspun yarns aren't crap, and *are* worth spending money on.
