Diakeito yarn

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..."

I saw some Diakeito yarn at Stitches in the fashion show - there was an amazing sweater that I circled in my program and I tracked it down the next day in the Market - it was so pretty - a metallic lame - in variegated colors, and it seemed like it wouldn't be so scratchy like other metallics. BTW want to say thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog, I'm enjoying yours too!

Woolcott and Company in Cambridge Mass had a good selection of Diakeito--The Panopticon had a mention about knowing their new manager. We're on Star Wars V and I'm almost done with sock#2.Yay!

Diakeito, wow, you have really found some fantastic yarn! That is for sure. Great links! Have not seem the original Noro link. So much to do, soo little time. Never a boring day! /Hugs, Swedish yarn-vulture (hmm was that spelled right!)
