Blanket for Jason - Help!??

Dear all,

I was really sadenned by the recent posts about Jason and wanted to help with the knit-along blanket...but I can't get LionBrand in the UK and I tried to order online but they don't ship to the UK.

I wonder if anyone would be willing to send some to me so I can make a square?

Thanks

David

MMario: Thats good to know because I just had to go with the order as dictated by Banyarn tree. The wool has been posted to me so I'm champing at the bit to start making squares.

curious - what size ball do they sell it ? Over here it is a 7 oz pull skein.

MMario: They sell here in the UK at half the weight, 3.50 oz./100 g (170 yd/156 m). for £2.50 .

2.5 British pounds = 3.71425 U.S. dollars
7.4285 or $7.43 for your 7 oz pull skein.
How does that compare with your charges?

I paid $3.75 for the 7 oz I picked up the other night - but it was on sale.

I've gotton 3 crocheted squares so far and the skein looks about 1/2 gone - so I'd say people are going to be able to knit 3 squares from a 100 gm ball.

Thank you very much for the link. It was very helpful. The postage and packing isn't expensive and you can also pay by PayPal. I've ordered and I'm awaiting delivery.
