Hi,

I am looking for a blue/green variegated yarn (preferably DK weight) to knit a baby afghan. I have a leaflet from Leisure Arts with the pattern and I love the yarn they used but it doesn't specify the brand, just that it's DK. I've been looking on line for something similar but haven't seen anything that strikes my fancy yet. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

kbknits

How about this? (An added bonus: it's 100% superwash wool)

This is what I did with some of it:

I read that color was discontinued in 2010...but there are seven Ravelry stashes (http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/schoeller--stahl-limbo-color/stashes?status=&cf=%3F&photoless=0&search=2529)
of 2-5 balls each. You could message each Raveler and see if they want to sell their remaining balls. That is, if you like the yarn and the color.
