Remember the Squares we all knitted

Jaxom's picture

Remember the Squares we all knitted for Jason with Vanna's Choice yarn? Well I decided I could not part with the yarn or give it to someone who would not understand its true meaning. So I started making a blanket for myself.
I have made three squares that are 20 inches side to side. A fourth is allmost finished but I have run out of the Honey colour with only a few incehes to go. I used up more Honey making the squares last year so my remaining yarn amounts was uneven.
As I live in the UK I went back to the only British supplier thinking I would buy some more and make the blanket bigger. Now here is the problem. They no longer stock the olive and are running stocks down as the person who runs the store is moving back to the USA after 15 years here in the UK.
I only need a little Honey to finish the fourth square but wont be able to go larger with out being able to buy the olive as part of the four colours we were using.
Can anyone help me out please with bits of yarn that you may have left in your stash. I would be willing to cover postal cost or send something to you that is for sale only in the UK.
Many thanks Jack

For some strange reason

For some strange reason Internet Explorer is not letting me get into my email. I can browse the net and post on Ravelry and here, as well as all manner of things on Amazon. Strange???
Kyle: I will email as soon as I can get to my account. Is anyone else having problems with Yahoo?

Jaxom I would be more than happy to.

It's only fair as when I visited Wales the people were such sweethearts. I particularly loved Caerphilly Castle. It looks almost like a movie set. Along with that great cheese they make.

Sure will send anything I can. (let's see... have some used dental floss right here... Oh!!! and the trussing string from the roasted chicken last night.... and the rope left over from hanging my last boyfriend....) Yep, gotcha covered!! Just let me know.

I probably have more of

I probably have more of "Jason's yarn" in the leftover stash from the extras from that project - if you email me (kyle) [at} kunnecke *dot* net we can make arrangements... (that is, if Steve hasn't already helped you) -

sounds like a wonderful thing you have done - and I know Jason loved his blanket... it's one of the most amazing things I have seen knitters do... we're pretty damn amazing when we all come together like that!

Hi Kyle being able to use

Hi Kyle being able to use the same yarn would be wonderful. I suppose I am not the only person on this site who is sentimental about Jason’s project. I will take a photo of the squares I have made so far and post them for people to see. I did add white yarn to stretch the four colours I had. Anyway thanks again. I will send you a PM later.
Cheers
Jack

I used the leftovers to knit the prototype of my Chapel Bells shawl - which I then auctioned off at a RESCU charity function (and it was purchased by a co-worker who didn't know when she bought it that I had made it!)

I remember seeing a photo of the finished shawl being blocked. It looked fantastic. I'm sure your co-worker loved it.

How very true...it makes me glow inside every time I think of him cuddled up in his afghan. That helps with the sorrow. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Thanks Steve. You are a

Thanks Steve. You are a godsend. I will write to you when I get home. Here in the UK the yarn is £4 a ball which just over $6 so its not too bad. I just cant get the olive colourway at all.
