If at first you don't succeed...

I was bound and determined to find a yarn guide to make my life easier when I started my journey into Fair Isle...especially as a Continental devotee. I knew that the Clover yarn guide was available at JoAnn's online but lo and behold my local JoAnn's didn't have it in stock. So then I called all my LYSs...nope. Then venturing across the bay into another county...called two LYS. No dice! Keep in mind that my Bea Ellis Traditional Hat kit arrived on Thursday and I was itching to get started...hat is for my nephew's birthday at the end of the month. Called 2 more JoAnn's and then tried my last hope...Stitchworm in St. Pete (which is combo needlepoint and knitting store). Didn't think it was worth it but EURECKA!!!!They had the yarn guide!!!! And so the hat is cast on and about halfway to goal with knitting up the lining!
