Wool Yarns and such . . .
Greetings all! I've missed logging on and reading all the posts, but will Fall and cooler weather around the corner, knitting is becoming even more attractive a thing to do!
I've a little bit of a collection of color cards for some mid-priced wool and wool blend yarns, and had made out a list to order with some B'day money . . . does anyone else get frustrated at not finding one on-line store that carries all the yarn you want? I'm not talking boutique yarns, but say, a store that carries Plymouth yarns AND Cascade yarns AND Brown Sheep yarns. I don't know how many hours I spent checking different sites, prices, etc. When I found a site that had two of those three, their color selection was pretty limited for one or the other brand.
I finally chose one brand and line, Plymouth Galway (which I have NEVER used before) and ordered from a site with reasonable prices called Royal Yarns. Has anyone ever dealt with them? I'm hoping the backordered colors don't take forever. I'll be making two scarves and a hat. Any thoughts re: Galway would be appreciated, even though it's already ordered!
Also, does anyone know why the Cascade 220 color card is upwards of $30, while most other cards, like the Plymouth yarns, are in the neighborhood of $5?
Thanks for letting me ramble! Hoping to post some photos of 3 works in progress soon!
Just one of the guys (who knits) . . .
