Have you tried looking for your color on this site?

They have lots of colors and gauges of cashmere. They'll even ply you a custom mix. It's not nearly as expensive as designer yarns.

Tapestry craft stocks nearly every colour in the DB baby cashmerino. If you wanted to check it out in person. I think their may sale is still on too. http://www.tapestrycraft.com.au/catalog/multi_info.php?cPath=1_356_463&osCsid=2b96a7f169cfb79d3882aba1b0575ab7&multiID=463

Belinda beat me to it! Check out Tapestry Craft before you order online.

I know you're pregnant, but I think you need a drink, or two.

I'm not sure if they will have anything at all similar to what you are after, but these people spin their own merino wool and it is beautifully soft. Scroll down to the bottom to see their a possum/merino mix (I know, but this is NZ) that is supposed to be very soft and warm (and comes in amethyst!).

Ahh.. tencel.. I always use Patons Zhivago [50% acrylic, 50% tencel] when crocheting scarves for myself.. I can't wear anything else around my neck, so soft! I wish there were more wools with tencel though.. not a lot of colour options for me.

I totally agree with you too: if you notice, then it matters! It's all the little things that make you want to do it in the first place ;)

i say forge ahead with the classic elite. you've been saving it in that box for a reason, maybe petite 6.5 is the reason. :)

Hello there!

Reading your blog for a long time now, I leave you my first comment and I hope it will help you (being mother of 4 children between 7 years and 9 months always makes me feel compassionate for other mothers-to-be ;)).

I've found some Parma Jaeger Cashmina here on ebay : http://cgi.ebay.com/JAEGER-CASHMINA-YARN-Parma-044_W0QQitemZ8194253354QQihZ020QQcategoryZ75569QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem. Don't know if it's the right color, or if it's enough, but I give a try :)

Wish you all the best!

when you know exactly what you want...and can't find it, that is hard.

Just read a very good review of this company http://www.poshyarn.co.uk/index.html on http://knitandtonic.typepad.com

Good luck!

Well, I'm all for buying new yarn - and cashmere! But I also have to say that Miracle is one of my favorite yarns to knit with ever. It's wonderful.

Looks like this!

I can't wait to see your garter sweater. I've wanted to make just such a thing myself for a while now. And everything you make is lovely and beautiful.

Once you get on the cashmere kick you can't get off of it! I know.

The cashmerino is really nice, btw.
