Yarn Search in Progress

Edited on 021208:

THANKS EVERYONE FOR SEARCHING
YOUR STASHES FOR THIS YARN.
WE FOUND IT ON (WAIT FOR IT...)
EBAY! Michale is extremely happy.
Now she can make a sock monkey sweater of her own.
Top Down, of course.


This falls under that wily category:
"Why didn't I think of this sooner?"

DOH!

See this sweater?
(not the little red monkey suit, the Sock Monkey Sweater!)


See this yarn?
It's Rowan DK Marl ~ Shade 822 Buttermint.
(The lot # doesn't matter as long as it's all one lot.)
I need more. I need 10 skeins more.
Help. Thanks!

This yarn is discontinued, has been for years. If you have some you don't want any longer please let me know. My friend Michale must have a Sock Monkey sweater and I told her I'd do what I can to help her find some yarn like mine. (She's buying, btw.) We've tried the usual searches, including ebay. No luck yet but we have our feelers out! Any leads are appreciated.

I love how relaxed the sock monkey looks!

If I come upon any I will surely let you know!

Thank you for putting this request out there, Rebecca! I hope it will bring some results! The photo makes the sweater look so good, if someone has this yarn, they may just decide to knit it themselves!

Have you tried Ravelry? I did a quick search for this yarn and there seem to be 11 people who have this yarn. All the colors are described as black/white or black/gray.

Checked the stash and I only have 8 skeins of Pastille #824 Charcoal/gray. If you decide to change color let me know
