Wanted: A Good Home For Some Lonely Yarn


Congratulations to Redford Phyl!

I had the best of intentions when I bought this. It was going to be a sweater for Goldisox. Unfortunately there were two fatal flaws:


  1. He hates the color


  2. 1300 yards ain't gonna cut it

So here it is in all its glory, looking for someone to love it the way I loved it but now don't even want to look at it. (Was that a sentence? I should be ashamed.)


Anyway here are the particulars:


10 skeins Sirdar Highlander


Shade 079 - Dye Lot 213 (it has a decidedly yellowish/ochre cast that doesn't show up in my photo)


131 yards/120 meters - 100 grams


70% wool - 30% acrylic


Made in Wakefield, England


I am a big fan of Sirdar Highlander and Sirdar Nova.

I'll throw my hat into the ring--the short person can use a sweater, and with that much wool, I should get it done in time for him to wear it! Lol! (Short person is now 6 months old....)
