This might seem like a very weird request but I simply don't know what to do.
I have a pattern that I've done before from a book called "Gifts and Accessories by Beehive" Book No.90. I've knit the angora helmet for babies on page 15. Was a very successful gift I might add and was a complete surprise seeing as I don't knit. Here's the problem: niece is expecting in January and I need to knit that damn hat again. The catch is - no Fuzzy-Wuzzy left on Earth! I called the manufacturer and it is not being made anymore. Does anyone know where I might find this in Toronto? Or if you have some at home may I buy it from you? The pattern calls for 1 (1/2 oz.) ball knit on two No.8 Queen Bee Knitting needles.
I've been to a couple of knitting stores in Toronto but wasn't able to understand what they were telling me as an alternative. Something about use this wool instead and change the pattern to match the tension. I can barely follow the pattern let alone change the thing. Any help would be much appreciated. I need to start soon because it will take some time to get my knitting fingers back in shape!! Thanks, Rob. Forgot to mention: my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
