Are you thinking of selling the Floating Wrap top here as well sometime in US terms? I am having a tough time finding the magazine here in Omaha NE. The B&N used to carry it, now when I ask about it no one knows what I am asking for. I've gotten the online version, but really enjoy actaully having the actaul magazine itself. I just love that top/scarf/shawl. I have yarn already(hope it's enough!) And now I am bummed because I can't find the magazine. Thanks for creating such lovely work and sharing it!

Basinah, Yes I will be selling the Floating Wrap here. I have to wait 6 months from when the issue goes for sale by terms of my contract with Inside Crochet. So in a few months, I will be selling it here.
Thanks for asking!
