If I had to name one yarn that was my all time, forever-favorite yarn, it would have to be Rowan Denim. The only thing I've made and not given away is my 'coat'.
I wear it year round, it's forever-old, but it's still looking pretty darn good. That yarn wears like iron.
I've made children's sweaters and afghans; my daughter has made a bunch of pillows to go with one of those afghans. It was discontinued several years ago, but I understand it recently has been reintroduced, but just in 3 color-ways: Memphis (the color of my coat), Nashville (a dark, dark blue--that I always found came off on my needles and hands, but I loved it in spite of this) and Black (a new color). The lighter denim colors and ivory must not have made the cut.
So you can imagine my delight when I tumbled into a yarn store this past weekend and saw Berroco's Indigo, made from recycled jeans and cotton. It has the same feel of the Rowan denim, is the same weight, and comes in the lighter colors that are missing in the Rowan line.
I wanted to buy it all.
If there had been sweater amounts in all the colors I just might have. (Luckily for the bank account, there was only enough in one color.)
I think I showed great maturity and restraint in not also buying needles so I could cast on immediately.
I had 3 other projects with me.
I'm not THAT mature.
