Yeah...DBNY is DANGEROUS. Fire Lizard Studios has FANTASTIC stuff.....:lol:

KP is who tried to...co-opt the Darn Pretty Needles name. From what I understand, an attorney was involved....and it wasn't pretty. (This is heresay; there's not much online about it, because the principals kept it quiet. Very professional of them.)

Darn Pretty Needles are from Linda and Tom "Shaft" Dyak of Grafton Fibers aren't they? Not people I'd want to upset. Nice people, but Vermont Tough(tm). :D I see Linda at the NH Sheep and Wool most years. Their stuff is wonderful and I love their spindles.

Yup. It was kept pretty quiet - which I think is commendable of the Dyak's. I would have gone medieval on KP.....

I can justify buying KP's yarn, because I don't think they're hurting/stealing anyone else's business. Needles, however....I just can't buy their cheap ones, knowing they took the idea from an independent craftsman and deliberately undercut them. Tom puts out his new colorways at $9.99/set - I try to buy them then.
