Yarn Pr0n Friday: Adrienne Vittadini, Rebecca

Turtlegirl76, hostess of Yarn Pr0n Friday, threatened to kill us :) if we don't follow the rules, so here on Friday morning, not Friday night, not Saturday, is Adrienne Vittadini Rebecca.


It's black cotton and nylon tape that I will use to make the Rebecca Jacket in the posting below. It requires (and I have) more than three skeins, of course.

I bought this yarn before I went yarn crazy, i.e. I waited to buy it until I was ready to knit the jacket. As most of you know Vittadini discontinues many yarns after a season or two. I panicked! I dropped everything, turning into an Internet Sleuth to find it. It took several hours but I found half of it at a store in Portland, Oregon, and the other half in another Oregon store clear across the state. And get this, it was all the same dye lot! Mom would say this yarn was just for me.
