I bought some cheap yarn and new needles today to learn how to knit again. Being new to this, I had thought that Lion Brand was very popular and available everywhere. The shop I went into today had very little Lion Brand. I bought two rolls (skein?) of Plymouth Jeannee(? -- the shop sticker covers most of the name). I plan to start with wash cloths and scarves.
What are some recommended brands to look for (and avoid)? I prefer machine washable and dryable.
