1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mystery Yarn - what is it? on: January 01, 2006 02:32:45 PM
Hi!
I am not very good at following directions or patterns, and not very confident about knitting, so tend to buy one ball at a time to play with, and my projects grow from there.
 
I wanted to make knitty's boogie time watch band, but of course had the wrong sized needles, so decided i'd make leg warmers instead.  Problem:  I have started on my 3.25 circulars with the yarn i bought at some point in time at Walmart.  I have (oh-so-foolishly) lost the label, so don't know what i'm knitting with.

(I'm generally very strict about keeping labels, but in the pre-Christmas habit to hide things in my craft room, somehow tossed it.)

It was the last ball that Walmart had when i bought it, and i haven't seen it since at the same walmart nor at the White Oaks one here in London, Ontario. 
Lens Mills was a no go, too, as was Lewiscraft.

I've searched the online yarn catalogs, and haven't found anything that close. I'm not enough of a knitter to describe it in helpful detail, but it's got a silky sheen and I think that the label said 'sport'...but i wouldn't swear to it.

Of course, i'm just loving knitting with it, and will soon run out.  Does anyone have a guess what it might be?  or perhaps (please oh please) have the same yarn and can give me the name from their label? 
Dye-lots be damned - i just want to make SOMETHING from this pretty stuff.   Smiley  (From a watch band to leg warmers...now?  I want a sweater!)

Here is the Yarn, thanks to Craftsters handy picture hosting.  (Hope it works!  New to digital camera use AND to picture hosting.)




It's closest to the Lavendar yarn on the following link, but there are some differences.  The colour is off, but that could be a web-glitch, but the weave itself on my yarn is more like a chain, not twisted as this seems to be.

Note to self:  Looking for yarn online?  - definitely going to be a new addiction.   Roll Eyes

Any help would be very appreciated - oh, and Happy New Year everyone!
