Eco Eco Eco

For this Tasty Tuesday I wanted to highlight some fiber I picked up last month at my favorite LYS Charlotte Yarn during their anniversary sale.

I keep wanting to call it Echo, hence the Eco Eco Eco post title ;op

But yes it is the Cascade Ecological WoolAll whoopin' 956 yds in totalof 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. As most of you may already know or quickly determined that is fabulous yardage for a very "economical" price at $15 bucks a hank, or in my case an additional 20% off from that great anniversary sale.

It is in shade #8087 (wheat colorish) and I haven't put my finger on what to call "her" yet...any suggestions?

She is going to become....yes....the Hemlock Ring. Janet has encouraged (pressured haha) me in taking on this project with our duo Charlotte Purls KAL. After I hmm'd and haaa'd about it I went ahead and got the yarn, as she wasn't even convinced I really had it! ;op See! I do!! :oD

Well can't really promise when I will cast-on for her, but she will be on the needles sooner than later! ;o)

    I agree with Anne, chocolate coffee is what the color reminds me of.

    I love the Hemlock Ring and it is definitely one of those "want to knit someday" projects!

    This will be really nice for yours.
