A yarn worth talking about

scottly's picture

I found another yarn that makes my eyes roll back into my head and shiver with delight. A lot of people have mentioned Cascade 220 but the Cascade 220 Tweed is worth its own converstation. Its wonderful to work with, feels great up against your skin, the wool paranoids can't tell its wool and I love the colors. I'm Lutheran and can't help but get turned on by earth tones and the Cascade 220 Tweed in the deep olive and ruddy brown (don't know the official names) are gorgeous. The lys lady turned me on to it and I'm so happy she did. So if you've never used it, I highly recommend it.

denominations by colour reference?

Earth Tones - Lutheran
Jewel tones - Espiscopalian
What selections for Methodists or Baptists?
Quakers traditionally would be blacks and grays....
Scientologists would probably be self-striping.

I'm with Tom H. I don't get the Lutheran reference. I was raised Lutheran and I don't get it. My father and my grandfather and two of my great grandfathers were all Lutheran clergy and I still don't get it. It's kind of interesting to ponder though. Makes me think of Garrison Keillor.

As I understand it, Martin

As I understand it, Martin Luther denuded the churches of all ornamentation except the bare Cross, leaving them rather "colorless".
Get it?

He must have been kin to Oliver Cromwell, who did the same thing in England.
