Name That Yarn

I am a top secret WIP. When I am ready, my identity will be revealed.

Birthday money burns a hole in my pocket no more.

I am a scarf. I am too wide & am off to the frog pond.

Oh, the lusciousness.

C'mon. Take a guess. And also, here is a picture of my Must-Have-in-Progress.

I think that the yarn in the top picture might be Lion Brand Cotton Ease, the hanging sock like yarn has got to be Koigu. Is the purple and pink yarn Manos? I think it might be. I have no idea what the blue and yellow yarn is, but I like it. I like your sweater too, but I have no clue about that yarn either.

Oh that birthday money yarn is scrumptious. My guess is Cotton Ease for the top pic. Malabrigo for the purples. No guess for the rest. Did you go to the spinning demo?

That first one definitely looks like lion cotton ease. The birthday money looks like it went to Koigu which I've never tried but you are so messing me up over it. And the luscious stuff looks like more Manos. I think the yellow one is the Jungle colorway? The pink might be Sage? I almost ordered that one. And really I'm sure I'm wrong on all of them- except lion. Are you doing a log cabin? It looks like it!

Hmm, maybe some Rowan Cotton on top, some Koigu, Rowan Tweed maybe? and some Manos. I just want it all:)

I think Koigu and Manos or Malabrigo.

The top yarn looks like Knit Picks Shine, then Koigu, and Rowanspun. I don't think the last one is Manos, but I don't know what it is. It's sock yarn of some sort.

Oh, who knows! I'll leave the guessing to the others. Your pictures make them all look yummy. I love the colors of the purported Cotton Ease blanket. And that sweater panel is looking very fine!

I'm guessing cascade 220 and koigu...

Hm. The top looks like cotton to me, and the bottom is reminiscent of Manos but looks lighter-weight?

The sweater looks lovely, but all that seed stitch... oy!

The "Must-have-in-progress"...nice...the yarn! the chunky cables!
I have no idea what the yarn is ( I defer to your other learned yarnophile commenters there), but I like it!

I'm only guessing on the top and bottom- KP Shine and Cascade 220? Can't wait for the reveal!

Hmmmm, from top to bottom: Cotton-Ease, Koigu, Elizabeth Lavold Silky Tweed, Malabrigo (purple), Sundara yarn (blue/yellow)?,

Oooh, oooh, love that cardigan! What is it?

i'm gonna go against the norm and say #2 is claudia handpainted. it just doesn't quite have that koiguness...but on second glance...maybe it is...

i think the frogged scarf is kathmandu aran and for the bottom ones i think the purple is colinette jiterbug but i dont remember that colorway. definately a handpainted something or other (points for vagueness?)

thanks for the hand advice. i am really busy at school this week, so i'll limit myself to 10 rows a night (sigh.)

also, your lady E is the prettiest EVER. the 2 colors look beautiful together -- great idea!

Hmmmm...some sort of cotton--Sugar & Cream? Koigu! Rowan Tweed in the scarf? And I'm going to go with the flow & say the variegated is Manos, but I really have no clue . .
All so yummy--including the cables! :)

I'm guessing number 2 is Koigu (gorgeous whatever it is). Your Must Have is looking great. The cables really show well in that color.

Great Cables! My guess is Cherry Tree Hill?

Well, the top one can't be cotton ease, it doesn't come in htose colors. Shine is a good bet, though.

Definitely koigu....hmmm, I'll havet o go back and look at teh others.
