Anybody have 2 or 3 skeins?
I'm hoping that somebody out there has 2 or 3 skeins of Lion Brand's Homespun yarn in the colorway "Romanesque". It's been discontinued, and I'd like to make a shawl out of it, but I only have one skein.

It's primary light and medium greys, with a bit of silvery cream, as well as a bit of rose and teal. It's one of their "painterly" colors.

I thought I had some, but mine is not the painterly stuff. I have some odd skiens that have been discontinued and I have had some luck calling the 800 number for Lion Brand and sometimes they have what you need in the wharehouse. I have also found some at the local rummage stores.

Think I will use the others skiens to make an odd ball prayer shawl.
