Rowan is Too $$$!
Anyone know of I good replacement yarn for Rowan Big Wool? Something more expensive than Lion Thick and Quick but cheaper than the Rowan. Any ideas? I think the pattern calls for 15 and 17 needles.

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

Big Wool is so yummy

Not sure about a sub, but I do know that WEBS has several closeout colors of Big Wool for $7.99 a ball.

The gauge for Big Wool seems to be 8 stitches to 4". I am getting the same gauge, and in fact the same gauge is listed, for Filatura di Crosa "Super Soft", which is now on sale at Webs for $2.99 for a 50 gram ball.

Thanks guys,
I'll go check out the Super Soft at Web's. I know that I already like the price. Oh, I guess that I should said that I'm looking at the pattern for the turtleneck poncho in "Stitch N' Bitch".
