Wool in my soup

I am a 67 year-old grandmother living on Vancouver Island. I have crocheted, cross-stitched and rug hooked, but I always had yarn on needles. Recently knitting has become my primary hobby!

Can anyone out there help me?

I forgot to mention in the previous post that I am looking for a skein or part skein of Lang Jawoll colour # 820164. I am not fussy about the dyelot, but mine is 46188. I tried to get some from an out of country source, and it would have cost me $15.00 for shipping. That is a heavy price to pay for a skein of yarn!

Thanks, Peg

PS If you know of any yarn shops in Canada that carry Lang Jawoll, let me know and I will write and see if they can help!

Hey Peg - give Mad About Ewe a call in Nanaimo - I am pretty sure they carry it! I am heading there next Friday - so I would grab it for you if it is there!

Hi Peg. The shawl is looking lovely.

I know that Yarn Forward in Ottawa carries Jawoll, and they do mail order: http://www.yarnfwd.com/ca/index.html

I'd check there for you, but I don't think I'm going to get a chance to get back there before the move.

Good luck!

You might try Red Bird Knits- in Toronto -she carries Lang, and her supplier may have the right yarn for you. Good luck-it looks beautiful!!!
