Close Out Yarn Purchase

I went back to Hilltop this weekend to pick up another ball of Jo Sharp DK in a lighter color for more swatching and came back with almost a sweaters worth of it. Hilltop has decided not to carry this yarn so they put it on sale for 30% off. I feel lucky to get that much of one color on sale.

Here’s a swatch of the embossed rib* stitch used to create Ripple in Knitted Sweater Style. Although I like the cut of the sweater, this stitch really doesn’t excite me.

  1. Hope you bought an extra skein just in case. You never know with Hilltop not carrying the yarn anymore and all… That Jo Sharp DK looks luscious.

  2. I bought all they had and then picked up more at another store to make sure I got enough. Luckily, I was able to match they dye lot.
    This yarn is such a pleasure to knit. I’m not sure what I’ll make with it.
