Today’s featured yarn is a little something I just *had* to pick up the other week when I just *had* to stop by a yarn store nearby my work. I had convinced myself that it would be nice to do them a professional courtesy of hand-delivering their Lorna’s order, on the grounds that they had *just* been to our studio the week before… but let’s be honest: I just wanted to go there and scope out the yarn. Aside from a few things for my secret pal, the only thing I ended up buying was this single ball of tweedy wool.

The color name is the illustratively descriptive moniker “5314,” but I prefer to think of it as some wildly colored bumpy old frog in the jungle. Hey, if they’re not going to provide a name, I reserve the right to make up a silly one! But maybe I’m just thinking about flashy amphibian skin since I’ll be putting the yarn into service as a brightly mottled cephalopod flesh. I’m planning to use the Plymouth Tweed to knit another of the Hansiguruimi Cephalopod set: the octopus! Octopuses can be tweed, right?
