You can't always tell....

I quite liked this yarn when I saw it on the shelf. Knowing me, it was the blue/turquoise combo that caught my eye.

As you can see, the blue was not quite so dominant when it was knitted up. Glad I didn't get enough for a sweater (like I ever do!)

Proved useful for hat pattern prototype, however, and the hat will be worn on dark mornings walking across the field with the dog.

There's nearly a ball of the yarn left (Adriafil Knitcol trend), so will probably use for fake-isle - there are samples on Rav and it's looking quite effective.

Hello, I found your pattern on ravelry, "Drop Stitch Cable sweater" published in Yarn Forward issue 37/June 2011.
I would very much like to purchase either your pattern or the back issue of the magazine. I cannot find it anywhere that I can purchase it. Can you either sell me the patttern or the magazine?
Thank you
Linda Connor
