Enter Debbie Bliss Cashmerino SuperChunky to save this knitter in distress. I love this yarn. I love it even though it contains Acrylic-disguised-as-Microfibre. It's like knitting with a cat's tail (but bendier) that doesn't end for a full 75 metres. When I heard it was to be discontinued back in 2009, I bought up as much as I could get my hands on, which wasn't nearly enough. And I've still got it because I couldn't use it in case I needed it. That's Stasher's Logic for you.
But yesterday my need was great enough. I consulted the stash spreadsheet in order to locate the yarn (I'm not even joking) and within 24 hours that cowl was finished. Granted I had a day trip on the train to knit it in, but using 8mm needles, instead of the 3mm needles I've been using recently, knitting seems almost instantaneous.
So, Debbie Bliss, you've set up your new shop - looks lovely - so couldn't you find time to work on getting Cashmerino Superchunky back on the shelves?
