This is just a post on the off-chance. I have 7 balls of Rowan Pure Wool 4 ply in a lovely rich purple. I bought it a wee while ago and am now having second thoughts as it doesn't particularly go with anything I usually wear.
I would love to swap it for some equivalent yarn (4 ply, 100% wool) in a colour that I would wear. These colours would be - red, green, turquoise, mustard, rich blue. I have had a peruse on Ravelry at their yarn swap section but can't see anything quite right.
So, if you have anything you'd be willing to swap please let me know by the end of the week in the comments or by email on kestrelmail[at]gmail.com.
It's a lovely rich colour and a good quality wool so if no one wants it I'm going to knit it up into a cardigan anyway!
These photo are an ok representation of the colour - I'd say it was a little darker than it photographs (the ball band is more creamy coloured than white so it's a little bleached out).
