this very same thing happened to a friend who ordered some Reynolds Mandalay from them. She didn't find out either until she checked where it was. They did let her cancel it after we found her stuff at a LYS, for a better price even, so we got lucky. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, Stacey! I still haven't touched mine, still at 2 repeats. feh!

Well, I double-checked with Herrschner's and they said they wouldn't get it in until June 29!!! I combed the internet looking for other sources, but with zero luck.

Then I happened to be looking at an Interweave Knits magazine (the first I've ever bought) and saw an ad in the classifieds for an LYS here in Ann Arbor and among the yarns it listed was Reynolds. So I called on Saturday to see if they carried Mandalay, which they do, but they were out of my color. So the owner is ordering some today and she thinks it will be in by Friday! I'm very excited!

In the meantime, I am filling my time by repeatedly screwing up my first Simply Lovely Lace Sock and also knitting a couple of toy dinosaurs for my boys!

I agree with gardenmommy DO ITTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!

It really is a simple pattern - it was my first lace project and while it took a while because it is so big, it was a great first lace project!

Well, I would think that any soft yarn that is light worsted weight or DK would work. The gauge is 4.5 stitches per inch in stockinette.

I'm thinking about using alpaca, microfiber, or merino wool.

I wonder if Caron simply soft would work..it's light worsted and cheap! And happen to have some...

My budget is like a vice at the moment! I'm trying to feed two of us on about $30 a week so it's hard to justify buying yarn outta that. Though, a skein or two sneaks in occaisionally...ahem *coughs*

Or maybe I'll save this project for when I can buy good yarn. *Sighs*

It's so pretty. I would love to have one for fall.
