I am so sorry to show you this...

Sorry...so sorry...I know, you are on a yarn diet...BUT...



Just as I suspected.
Gorgeous yarn.
Elann has developed this yarn called DEVON. It is 100% unshrinkable wool...so soft...really, really soft.
The colours are beautiful! Perfect for fair isle knitting.
Oh and for socks...yes! Beautiful textured socks.

Here is a swatch I knit up last night. It will be one of the christmas hats for my nephew...obviously for the one who is into star wars.



I haven't washed the swatch, I just did a quick steam iron on it. I'll let you know how it washes and how the swatch wears....
So far...I am loving this yarn!

P.S. please don't buy it all!

What a great Star Wars graph! :) I must look into this yarn. . .

That graphic is great! Is is machine washable? I know it says hand wash on the website, but I'm dying to know if you can machine wash it!

You are mean.

I love those colours, all of them.

I need to go figure out some reason of why I need them all for "Christmas gifts."

Good thing I didn't join the summer of the stash.

Oh, how cool! I might have to try to case it and make a hat for DH.

I can't wait to see the finished product!

Ginger said...

Oh my goodness. Hubby just walked by and said "Cool! What is that?" "It's a swatch for a hat." "You could make me one." Then son and daughter came over to see what was going on. Son,"R2D2! R2D2!" Daughter, "Oh, I want one!"

So, that's three R2D2 hats I need to knit. *sigh*

Very cool, I can't wait to see the finished product.
