NaBloPoMo Day 3: you don’t know what you got till it’s gone

Rowan is discontinuing Calmer! If you are a knitter, you know what this means. If you are a knitter who can’t use wool, you really know what this means. For years I have been saying I should knit myself a sweater with Calmer. It’s supposed to be the wool substitute yarn. It’s stretchy, it’s soft, it makes lovely cables. It’s also $13.95 a ball for 175yds. That’s a fairly good yardage for a ball of yarn but it’s also a lot of money considering that I think I need a minimum of 10 to make a sweater.

So, now that it is being discontinued, I’m buying some. I hope it’s not my new favorite sweater yarn because that would make me sad.
