The Last Hurrah

What you see before you is my last yarn purchase of 2006. It also happens to be the first pure cashmere I've ever owned.

Sauveterre Luxury Fibers Italian cashmere, hand-painted in the "Briar Rose" colorway. Three 200-yard skeins of sportweight delight. No designated object as yet, but I'm open to ideas.

I made the decision in December to treat myself to some truly luxurious fiber before my self-imposed yarn buying ban kicked in. I had one thought as I untied the satin ribbon and brown tissue paper that held my treasure: what a softly wonderful way to go!

By the way, the update on the content harvesting issue? It looks like the link I brought to their attention now redirects to a random selection of pR0n, so I think I'll just let sleeping dogs lie.

WOW!! Luxxxxurious!!
This label, the yummy chocolate ribbon and the beautiful yarn..the pure fact that it's cashmere....for some reason makes me think of the best champagne you can buy! This is yummy yarn! Going to pop over just to see if this $$ is ever in my future of must haves. Lucky girl and totally can't wait to see what you knit up with this. Let me know when you do so I don't miss it.

Oooooh! beautiful yarn! I'm sure it feels wonderful. It's so pretty how she packages the yarn - did she also write in gold ink on the tissue? I have two skeins of the same colorway in her sport merino (got it right before she stopped dying it!) - that too is wonderful. (ps- Hope the content issue is a sleeping dog for you.)

(oh me again) My idea for using the three skeins? A shawl/shoulder wrap (sometimes I think they're like a grown-up's blankie:) Terry

Gorgeous yarn. My idea is the same as Terry's, a shawlette of some sort. That way you can have the equivalent of champagne draped across your shoulders!

How delicious! I'm in love! I WILL NOT go back and re read your post to learn more about that lucious yarn! What a way to say good bye to yarn shopping in 2006.
Again, I WILL NOT go back and read more about that yarn.
