One of my Favorite Literary Character's as Yarn

One of my favorite books to read and one of my favorite made for television mini-series to watch is Pride & Prejudice (not the one with Keira Knightly but the one with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth) by Jane Austen. I like Jane Austen novels, the time period, the romance of it the strong characters and the strong women. I especially love Elizabeth Bennet.

Now I come to find that a company called Yarn Love has dedicated Miss Elizabeth Bennet in Yarn and that The Loopy Ewe has the yarn (click it to go directly to the yarn). Unfortunately for me, of course, although it come in gorgeous colorways, it is made up of 65% Superfine Merino, 20% Bamboo, 15% Silk. Well, 1 out of 3 fibers isn't bad.

Just, please, let me know if any one has a yarn named after Jo March. I think I would be more upset if I couldn't use that yarn. Little Women is STILL my all time favorite book.

I missed that in my Loopy midnight grab and growl earlier this week. I'm not much on Jane A., but I'm with you all the way on Litle Women, especially Jo!

Hmmm - I feel like Shaefer Yarns had a Louisa May Alcott Yarn and they offer most of their colorways in mecerized cotton. I'm not finding it right now though...

"Fitted Knits" by Stephanie Japel has an Elizabeth Bennett cardigan. ;o)

Ah, great books to be sure. The only yarns I'm aware of I know you are too, and that's Schaefer who names a lot of her colorways and yarns after famous women - I'm just not sure she does fictional characters.
