I finally found a substitute yarn for Rowan Big Wool to make Anticipation. I bought some Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick! I had remembered reading something about someone using this yarn instead of Big Wool for a project, but I had never seen it in any of the craft stores. I finally saw it at JoAnn's, but at a location I don't usually go to that's further out. The main color is charcoal and the contrasting color is fisherman. It's been extremely nice weather here lately, but I expect that I'll be able to wear the jacket a few times before spring and summer come.
