Bright stripes question

Hi all. I've been reading for a while. I love the Scarf Style book! I have done Here and There Cables and am almost done with Vintage Velvet. I will get photos.

I have a question regarding the Bright Stripes scarf. Has anyone knitted this scarf? If so, what yarn did you use. The Devon Yarns Julia seems a bit difficult to find.

Happy New Year to all!

    I used brown sheep lambs pride worsted weight. I'm actually just finishing it up now, so I should be posting a pic in a few days, but there is a partially finished picture on my blog: http://chefmessy.typepad.com.

    I like how it turned out, but wish I would have gone down a needle size, as it's rather large. I think this is more a problem with my gauge than the yarn, though.

    Devon Yarns got absorbed into the new Nashua Yarns line just this past summer, so you will probably start seeing Julia available in more stores very soon because Nashua Yarns are available nationwide.

    Kristin Nicholas designed Julia as a replacement for her alltime favorite yarn, Classic Elite's now-discontinued Tapestry. Kristin is working on a book right now in the spirit of her old Classic Elite ethnic kits series, and she's using Julia for the samples. The book will be out in late 2006 or early 2007.

    If you Google for "Nashua Yarns Julia" you'll turn up a number of mail order sources.

    Look at the website ofr Great-Yarns in Raleigh, NC. They have the yarn for $6.95 per skein.
