A is for Aarlan Arwetta

Of course. Let my maddening alphabet game begin.

I picked up 3.5 skeins (735 yards) from Catherine Knits when she was destashing. It's a Swiss yarn that claims on the website that it's been discontinued. I saw it stocked in a lot of department stores in a gazillion colors while I was there for about $3 US dollars a skein. It's 75% superwash wool (or, as the label informs me, it's "hot washable") with 25% nylon and acrylic. It's a tightly twisted 4-ply. It seems like a good, workhorse yarn. Not too soft. Not too scratchy.

I decided to use it to cast on for the Shetland Shorty. It's a boob-holster that will use up about 600 yards. It's reputed to move along quite quickly.

And so begins my destash adventure.


  1. This is a cool idea! Also, I'm amazed you were able to start with a double-A word. Nice.

  2. I was going to title the post "Double A's for some Double D's". But, ya know, that would be a lie. :P

  3. Comment me procurer cette merveilleuse laine que j'ai utilisée il y a plusieurs années? Il me la faudrait par correspondance, car je suis handicapée et ne puis joindre un magasin.
