Oh, thank you, I'm so relieved!

Hi, I am keen on knitting this sweater but the yarn Melody, which is gorgeous, is missing the colour blue (now that "Dark Jeans Blue" has been discontinued). Will you be adding shades of blue and when would they be available by?

Dear Silke, This colour will not been discontinued (got the wrong symbol), so that you hcan still get it to work the jumper. Happy knitting!
