Hi! This is my first post to the forum although I’ve enjoyed reading answers to many of the questions over the last few weeks. I’ve been knitting for 40+ years ( with some time out when my kids were small).
My question: I have a pattern which was written for Paton’s Anna yarn which is appantly not made anymore. I’m looking for a good subtitute, preferrably in a wool blend, but I’ll use acrylic too. The pattern needs two shades of the same color ( like lilac & purple) and an ombre of the two colors mixed. From the gauge it appears I’ll need a bulky (#5) weight.
any suggestions would be great with info on where to get the yarn.
