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.

    I’ve been a pretty big fan of Calmer – nice colors and a nice knitted fabric. I’m also a big fan of your November blogathon! Keep ’em coming!

      I’ve only ever knit hats with it because of the price, Mary. I am getting a sweater quantity, though, for a final Calmer Hurrah!

      Thanks for the comments on the blog. I enjoy the daily posting in November but can’t keep up the rest of the year. Go figure. 🙂

      Their Facebook feed is how I found out about it! They sold out of the color that I wanted already but that’s kind of okay because it’s cheaper from other places.
