Coveted


That's what this yarn is (Handmaiden Swiss Mountain Silk Cashmere). I keep it close. It stays upstairs with me as opposed to the rest of the stash in my basement. It gets pulled out from time to time for a quick visit, a pet and a snuggle, then gets gently put away again.
I surf Ravelry at least once a week to see if there are any new patterns that are worthy enough for this yarn. Something that will use up every single one of the 187 yds of luxury this little skein has. Nothing has met my requirements, yet...
But one day, I will find something that will match with my desire for this yarn.
Until that time it will retain it's place as my most coveted skein.
What's your most coveted skein?

I don't know if I have one in particular, but all of them would have "Fleece Artist" or "Handmaiden" written all over them. I heart that yarn!

I agree with Anne. I'm not sure I could point out one skein but I do have some yarn that I have deep feelings for...

Gorgeous yarn. I think I received my best ever skein of yarn today from Ripples Hand Dyed Yarns. So soft and snuggly.

I just remembered my lady Godiva from Handmaiden. I've been looking for a pattern for that yarn for a while now.

Ooh that is most covetable

My most coveted yarn is some Jade Sapphire silk cashmere: http://www.ravelry.com/people/Thumbelina/stash/cashmere-silk-2-ply

Who knows whether any pattern will ever be good enough for it!

The things my dad brought me from New Orleans last year. I still haven't used it. And he doesn't understand the concept of yarn telling you what it wants to be. But he's planning another trip and if I want more I'll have to start something!
