Diakeito is gorgeous yarn from japan. hard to get here, and Mary had a hard time finding it in Japan as well. in our area, Seaport Yarn carries some of it.
the hat is an old Noro booklet Design, although some lady at kitty city told me "a woman in our store wrote the pattern"
sure. yap. and I am Horst Schultz........
the sock yarn i have is Trekking XXL 101.
I just love it. I also want to make a reversible hat with it. on skein is 459 yards..
the colors keep you wanting to knit "just one more row..."
