trip to Yarns at Lace Wings

I need to get some yarn so I can start work on what I guess I'll call a variation on this pattern. Tomorrow and Saturday don't look possible, so I figure I'll go Sunday afternoon afternoon. Is anyone interested in joining me, either to get yarn themselves or to browse and help me pick out good yarn?

In that connection, the pattern calls for 8-ply yarn. [Edit: samantha2074 explains that this is the British term for DK yarn.] Is there another name for this, or is the way you get 8-ply yarn is by getting two skeins of 4-ply and knitting two strands at once? (Or am I totally off either way?)
