I bought lots of knitting books when I lived in England and lots of yarns, fell in love w/ British wools and other yarns, also the European ones. I would indeed love a source for them. Hang the cost: if you can't get something here then it's worth paying the extra to get it across the pond. And we have no knitting shops anywhere around, just the small selection at Wal-Marts and I hear tell they're thinking of eliminating their crafts section. Nearest decent supplier of yarns is then a 100-mile round trip.
