The yarn is Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran in Hemlock. I wound up using 15 skeins, including swatching; I bought 16. Needless to say, this was not a cheap sweater.

And it was right around the time Jo Sharp switched distributors and so, as I walked out of the shop clutching my treasured sweater-to-be, the LYS owner warned me that were I to run out of yarn, she would not be able to get more from the same mill, forget dye lot, so was I positive I had enough yarn?

I assured her I did. The size I planned to make called for 1200 yards; I had bought nearly 1500.

In retrospect, that was the beginning of all my troubles.
