It's official. I'm going to run out of Rowan 4-ply cotton in color 136. I called Knitting Arts yesterday and they are out. I called ImaginKnit and they don't carry that color. Luckily, I called Greenwich Yarns and they do carry it, but might not have the right dye lot. I will call back later to check. Fingers crossed, everyone!
Spinnity suggests a very good option, which is to do the sleeves in a contrasting color. I thought it might be quite cute to do cream sleeves and pockets and maybe stitch around the buttonholes in cream, too. I will not be discouraged!!
On a happier note, I just joined the Yarn of the Month club. Hey, why not? It sounds like a cool way to try new yarns on the new needles I got for Christmas from Spinnity. The January yarns look really nice, so I hope I'm not too late.
