Jill Draper makes fabulous yarn. I think we can all agree on that. After working on her Rural Renewal collection, and then on assignment for Etsy, I
Jill posted that new yarn was up in her shop. Dave fell for Valkill in Prune--a killer good black/purple/brown--y'know, like a prune. But it was gone before we had a chance stick it in a cart.

Dave chose this Middlefield in Old Mahogany instead.It's a little heavier than the pattern gauge but I can make it work. I love it.
Wondering what pattern he chose for his new sweater-for-the-ages? Before he'd even looked at the yarn colors? Zacapa. By Thea Colman.
That, I'm pretty sure, is irony.
