What's underway and Harris DK?
I am so happy to be here, and already have three (!) of the book's projects underway - 2 (!) Nina's shawls - one in cotton, the other in wool - AND the moderne baby blanket.
Like some kind of knitting fool, I also want to do the FLYING GEESE blanket, but can't find the Harris DK yarn from any of my on-line knitting sources. One site said that it was now called Scottish Tweed, but the colors don't match. ANYONE? I dont' have the guts n' gumption to try to pick the colors on my own.
I need to get the shade card so I can get a good view of the colors. But this is a lovely (American made!) yarn with the heathery look of the yarns shown in the book's Flying Geese blanket.
This is one to watch.
