What is Virtue?

virtue
I have 10 of these. I got them at an insane sale (Dec 2006)- all 10 were $5! you read it right. Says they are cashmere- I was a bit suspicious, but it is real. Artful Yarn's Virtue in the color Faith.
They came up to me yesterday and asked if they could become the Bird Nest shawl from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle, and I said, sure, why not?......
The names of the yarn could not be more befitting! I am going to feel very Virtuous when I finish this, but I'll need a lot of faith!

Ooh, 100% cashmere! I have yarn envy :)

Nad said...

this is a yummy yarn........ is it as soft and cuddly as it looks like??

Poshyarns said...

Oh how lovely, it will feel so luxurious. At that price it would have been rude not to. Hmmm, I think cashmere would come under my definition of happiness too.

the birdsnest shawl for my 30 year old for when she graduated from college. She "ordered" a black mohair shawl. It's hard to knit lace in black mohair but it should be a dream to knit in that cashmere. If you ever see such a sale again,buy some for me!!
