Well, I've heard from one gal (hi Janet!) who says she is knitting socks with the same yarn and that it is a very old Opal she's been aging. I sure hope so because I get the leftovers! :o)
Another gal (hi Debra!) thinks it is a Fortissima, but I'm not so sure. I've looked at tons of sock yarn this week and most Fortissima socks seem to have that little spotted band.
This is a lot harder than trying to track down some old quilting fabric! Speaking of quilts, here's one of the miniatures I used to do. It's called Sonora Nights
And here's the other resident of my studio. His name is Percy and he sleeps in a basket in the bookcase. He has the most unusual bronze colored eyes! He is my first "exotic" kitty, a short hair Persian. When he was 6 months old we rescued him from life with a yappy little dog who kept him trapped under a friend's bed for a week. He's been my constant shadow ever since. Merlin thinks he is a cute little toy so Percy is rather leery of him. But as long as Merlin is asleep (which is most of the time) Percy trots around the room and plays with his toys and begs for treats and generally owns the place. He will even sneak up to Merlin and gently sniff and pat him. If Merlin opens an eye Percy disappears in a hurry. :o) Outside of this room he is definitely a shadow.
