I'm blaming it on this peony. Someone out there has to be dyeing worsted this color, I told myself.
And so they are, kind of. After some searching and a long pondering of Classic Elite's mohair in Crepe Myrtle, I settled on two yarns, not so coincidentally at a good discount at Little Knits.
The much closer match is Brown Sheep Co.'s 100% wool Lanaloft in Orchid. .
More nuanced but also much more toward purple - I hadn't completely dismissed that Crepe Myrtle, evidently - is Mmmmmalabrigo worsted in Hollyhock.
I love them both and have enough yardage for a sweater in each but the search for peony worsted continues!
So much for the knitting content. As for the beagle content ...
