Help. Help. Help. Please send me some yarn.

The spring has sprung - I'd hoped that my cherry blossom shawl would be ready at the same time as the first cherry trees start to blossom. Now I have run out of yarn. Is there anybody out there who would have access to Plassard's 'Pichinette' yarn, colour 778 and who would send me some? I would be happy with one ball, even happier with two, and I could either exchange them with two balls of the same yearn in baby blue, or some other yarn or plain cash (just name your price, I'm rather desperate). I know it should be available in Luxembourg on in France but at least the three nearest yarn shops I know in Brussels do not sell Plassard yarns. Anyone? Anywhere? Or shall I just bury this 'til next spring?







(Katinkontti: menikö taas taju? Nostakaa joku sen jalat ylös, niin eiköhän se siitä virkoa. Maalasin tuossa joutessani vesiväreillä tän kukkakuvion.)

Oijoi, mites tosta linkistä tommonen tuli?! Ota linkki talteen, jos tarvitset, ja poista se sitten täältä sotkemasta.
Tuolla näkyisi muuten olevan free shipping anywhere.

Have you tried "Fil De Luxe" (FIL DE LUXE - Mme AGRA Maria Teresa,
Chaussée de Waterloo, 61
02 544 13 47)? It's not far from the South station, where I used to work. I went to that store often. If she doesn't carry it she might be able to order it. She's officially carrying the Plassard yarns, it sais so on the website of Plassard.

Hope you find the yarn! I can't help you I'm afraid.

Groetjes :D

Täällä mä oon maannut monta tuntia kanveesissa, eikä kukaan tullut jalkoja nosteleen. Edesvastuutonta tommonen! Onneksi saali ei ollut Kid Silk Hazesta, se kun oli musta enstex ihqinta, en ois ehkä toipunut ikuna, ainakaan ilman pätevää elvytystä.
P.S. Ihq saali, toivottavasti saat lankaa.
P.S.2 Tampereella sataa räntää / rakeita / muuta p****a, pidä vaan kirsikankukkas, kuka niitä kaipaa...

Hihii, kiitos vinkeistä! Suomeksi vissiin uskaltaa sanoa, että tässä on takana vähän jotain muutakin kuin mitä tuohon juttuun kirjoitin. Odotellaan ja kattellaan tapahtuuko mitään.

Emily, thanks! Yep, I've tried calling them but they don't answer the phone, and the two times when I've tried to visit them earlier this year, the shop has been closed (first time there was a piece of paper in the window saying they were on holiday, the second time there was no explanation). The problem is that I work so late every evening that the shop would be closed anyway, and my Saturdays are fully booked for weeks ahead. When did life become so complicated? And whose fault is it?

Hi Sophie and thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately I've been away from the computer for a few days and didn't see your nice offer - but it SHOULD be arranged now. We'll see.

Spent the weekend at a yarn fair in Cologne and had a nice talk at the Plassard stand. Hum-di-hum...
