Nearly all the labels (Elann, KnitPicks, Cascade, etc.) use pretty much the same yarns, just different colors so they can slap different labels on it. But it’s all mostly interchangeable Peruvian Highland worsted weight yarn; i.e., if it says Peruvian or Peruvian Highland, and it is worsted weight, it’s pretty much the same stuff.
A couple years ago I collected up all my various-maker Peruvian Highland worsted weight yarns into 7 Priority Flat Rate boxes, sealed them up and sold them as Mystery Boxes.
Today, because I have an idea to pursue, and because I’m waiting for the new yarn shipment to arrive and because I can’t dye anything until my world is put back together (some emergency demolition and repair work is being done), I’m going to take these two boxes:
and use the contents of those two remaining mystery boxes:
to create the thing I see in my head. And actually, this go-round is for swatching and testing purposes. I want to see if it will actually work in the way I want. I’m pretty sure it will, but I want to be absolutely sure.
So, wish me luck today!
