I really want to make the Dreamcatcher Cardigan but I can't find Brown Sheep Shepherd's Shades.  If a store carries it, they don't have the colors or stock to even substitute colors.  I don't have a local yarn store any more and so have to go on-line.  Brown Sheep doesn't sell from it's site and I've been going through the list of stores state by state for web sites to try.  

Anyone find this yarn or something that will work?  I've tried emailing the designer, but haven't heard anything back yet.  

 

Thanks,

B Arnold

Here are some possible sources for the Brown Sheep yarn but you can probably substitute most bulky, 4sts per inch yarns for it. I do like Brown Sheep yarns though.

Were you able to find yarn?  I have used Caron worsted weight acrylic( wool allergy) and changed some colors but i like the color changes. Have you started knitting. I ask because I am stuck at the sleeve and need someone else's perspective. Would be good to talk to someone else making this beautiful sweater. Anybody else got a idea on how to make the sleeves?  Waiting to hear, Marcia

It is a gorgeous sweater. I hope someone who has made the sweater can help.

Can you tell us where you have a problem with the sleeves? There's a picture in this project on Ravely that shows where the sleeves attach if that's any help.
