Wow! I need to remember some of these. Re : #1 ... I find that a lot of times the yarn is sacrificed. People choose low price instead of quality. This might me OK for garments that have a short life because they're "in" or fashionable, but for "classics" or garments that you will wear for years, a good, quality yarn that will stand up to years of wear is worth the extra cost.
