Okay, call me old-fashioned, but this is weird, isn’t it? Aromatherapy never really felt at odds with knitting to me. I mean, who was the genius who said to the Lily design team, “You know what the biggest problem facing knitters today is? Smelly yarn! I mean, who likes the smell of cotton? And god knows it’s impossible to light a candle while you knit! So let’s put chemical fragrances in the yarn! How has no one thought of that before?!”

Lily Sugar’n Cream Scents worsted-weight cotton yarn, $2.19 at Joann.com in Aloe Vera, Lavender, Fleur de Lavande (somehow different), Powder (yech!), Vanilla Bouquet, Camomile (sic), and Rose Petal.

Am I wrong? Is this a brilliant idea and I just don’t get it?
