I knew it was a 3ply wool. I wasn't sure if had any bamboo or silk in it but didn't think so. I had the WPI and the yardage. Now, I have the name...
Ella Rae Lace Merino in color #101 (Burgandy, Magenta)
I thought it was something I had purchased at Kathy's shop. But she knew right away that it wasn't hers (as any good shop owner would). So, I thought back to when I had purchased sock yarn. Amazingly, there haven't been many purchases but unemployement tends to do that to you.
The only other sock yarn I had aquired was from the Yarn Basket. Today, I was in the neighborhood. Ok, so this shop is about 60 miles from my house, I was at a friend's house 40 miles in that direction, close enough to make a trip. As soon as I got to the sock yarn section I saw it and had the a-ha! moment I was hoping for.
That's all. I was just worried that some of you might not be sleeping at night with this unsolved knitting mystery hanging out there. So the winner is Ella Rae. Mystery solved. We now return you to your regularly scheduled holiday knitting and spinning.
PS. I added color # 102 (Primaries) to my stash. Dying colorway research, don't ya know.
