I need to order yarn but I like both SKB and Sahara, tho I think I'd prefer Sahara for a winter sweater and do SKB for summer. Andean silk is nice and drapey but not sure how well it would hold up in a top like this. What yarns is everyone going with?
oh no! i've been trying to resist the allure of skb, in favor of doing some things for me kids. no, no...ok. let me look through my stash and see if i can find something to use, lol.
what all yarns have y'all seen this in that look good other than the ones mentioned? i wish i had time to get some henry's attic yarn and dye my own for this, but i'm just in the process of setting up my account so i don't guess i'll have time if y'all are starting already.
66 pages but I'm at "work" so had the time to waste.
I think I may go ahead and go with a KP yarn, shine, andean silk or something similar. Someone on craftster did hers in an elann cotton that looked much nicer than many of the silk skb's so I am thinking a cotton blend would be great for a short sleeve summer top. I doubted the andean silk but it does have a nice shine and drape, and the blurriness may be minimized after a good wash and block.
Still waffling, may have to pass and stick to the pile of men's sweaters I've promised dh (which I will of course steal to wear with jeans). Let's see if I loose the inches around the waist I want to, then I'll make myself this sweater in something outrageously yummy as a reward to myself.
But I will stick around to see how everyone's come along.
