I have just woven a runner from the Snowflake pattern in Handwoven Nov/Dec 2012.....The pattern does not look like a snowflake and i am wondering was the treadling wrong?.......Thank you

Hi, there! The treadling in the pattern is correct. I sent you an email with some questions so we can help you figure out what's not working with your runner.

Re "A Scarf Designed with a Guy in Mind"

I have been unable to locate Henry's Attic Peruvian Tweed 112. Yarn Barn of Kansas has advised me that they don't carry it, despite the statement in the article that the yarn is available through them. No other yarn seller carries 112. Is it possible the number 112is a typo? If so, which yarn in that series was used?
