If you ever need something that you feel cannot be found anywhere, don't despair, just post it on your blog or yahoo group or forum and sooner or later, someone will be able to get it for you or tell you where you can get it. Years ago, I would have been SOL!
I got an email from Marie-p in CT and she also posted on my blog that she knows of a shop in VT who has 2 skeins of NN189. I have emailed the shop owner and have requested that the floss be mailed to me.
I am doing the happy dance!
Thanks Marie, you are the best!
