    This may be a weird request. I am wondering do you know of anyone that could do a repair job on a knit sweater? It seems that the threading is coming a part and I do not want to have the sweater unraveling on me.

    Because you are in my neighbourhood , I wiondered if you had a wool called MEGA HANK. I pulled off a a simple textured scarf from the Tilli Tomas site and would love to try it as this is the year of the scarf with style.
    If you are floating around her site, the one I’d like to try is the waffle self fringing scarf.
    If you don’t carry this yarn do you have a suggestion , knit on size 15 us that would mimic the loose and colourful look. Thanks for your consideration. Ethel Snow, an old Mom with a young heart.
