I am thinking about knitting the "Mandarin Faux Cardigan" from Interweave Knits, Spring 2003 (same issue as Salt Peanuts) Although I am not married to using the reccomended yarn, I would like to see it for myself and swatch it.  The problem is, no-one in the US seems to carry Trendsetter Oceano.  I have even gone so far as to call Trendsetter headquaters in CA, and Interweave Knits in CO (I live in MA)  and so far no one has been able to tell me of a retailer who carries this yarn, or how I could obtain a color card.  I need Craftster's help!  All you knitters out there--any of your LYS carry this yarn?  Anyone familiar w/it?  Anyone know of a good yarn substitute to try?  It is 54% cotton, 46% viscose 120 yd.  It is a variagated yarn that seems to knit up kind of tie-dyed--not stripey.  It's the variagated part that I kind of like.  Thanks so much!

I did a quick web search, and the only thing I came up with was this yarn store in Ohio that doesn't currently have online shopping (although it appears they're in the process of developing it) and lists Trendsetter Oceano as a yarn they currently carry.  You might try giving them a call and see if they have a color card they can send you.  Hope this helps!
