It looks like a Penelope to me.

:doh: I guess you don't mean that kind of name, huh?

I'm sorry, I don't know what it is, but it is pretty. ;)

Looks like Koigu PPPM to me, though I'm at a loss for an immediate identification of the colorway. Try their website, you may have some luck.

It looks to me like this Victor Print yarn. See picture: http://wildstring.com/tab4/store/category/9ow6/Cascade_Yarns.html Click on the Bollicine Victor. I thought of it because I just got some in the mail yesterday and the colorway looks about the same. Maybe???

You're welcome. I have placed 2 orders with Wildstring and have been impressed with their service. I ordered last Thursday, it shipped on Saturday and I got the package on Monday.

I second that - I think it's KPPPM.

Kind of looks like Schaefer Yarn (http://www.schaeferyarn.com/yarnpages.htm) too. What fiber do you think it is?

Is it wool? I have an acrylic that looks a bit like that. samm

It's sock weight, it feels like a merino. I first thought it was Cherry Tree Hill or Lorna's Lace becasue of the colorway. I'm researching all the wonderful sites, I'll let you know what I figure out.

KPPPM colorways change quite often, and the same colorway #a few months later may look a bit different.
looks close to 106L: *click* (http://www.koigu.com/images/P416LP106LP534P436P118LKPPPM.jpg)
or maybe 146: *click on view colors, then click on the small rectangles to enlarge* (http://www.kyarns.com/koigu-painters-palette-premium-merino-fingering-weight-yarn.html)
??126?? *click* (http://www.yarnbarn-ks.com/prodinfo.asp?number=KY-KPPM-0126&variation=&aitem=5&mitem=31)
??111?? *click* (http://www.yarnbarn-ks.com/prodinfo.asp?number=KY-KPPM-0111&variation=&aitem=3&mitem=31)
??150?? *click* (http://www.foxyknits.com/pc-224-11-150.aspx)
??171?? *click* (http://www.foxyknits.com/pc-255-11-171.aspx)

WOW Jodi! Your good at this game!

Jodi is the winner!

I'm thinking it is 146. My version is a little more motteled. Gosh is all those Koigus purdy! How do you pronounce Koigu anyway? We should have a pronunciation list. heh

Thank you Jodi!

When I first shopped at my lys I saw this color and stood there fantasizing about this yarn, angels were singing, <record scratch!> I saw the price and freaked! heh. Oh I am so over that now. But ever since then I dreamed about those colors and could not remember what it was! Then I saw this little ball of yarn in a grab bag! Of couse I couldnt stand anything else in the bag and I refuse to say how much I paid! heh BUT I got it cause I knew a KHer would be able to steer me back to that first crush! Thanks Jodi!

And everyone else for playing!
