Oooh Quiltlady, thank you for that update! I was going to come in here and holler :lol: at Jan for getting me all riled up to knit this, hee. After she mentioned perhaps using another type of yarn from KP, I went crazy searching online this weekend, and came up with a couple colorways out of some other yarns. The biggest problem is finding something that has 9 shades that look nice together that I can afford without being forced to live in a van down by the river!! I think you could do it in the Peruvian Highland Silk fingering weight or the PH superwash wool fingering weight at elann. Or perhaps a mix of the two? I'm really liking brendajo's idea of the silk mohair at sarah's yarns, but you have to dye that with real dye, not kool-aid, right? I'm not that advanced yet :oops:
I was wondering if not doing it in a mohair blend would look strange. Do you think it needs to have that halo effect? I've never worked with a lace weight mohair before and aside from being scared to death of it, I think that stuff is itchy :teehee: Honestly, I always feel up all the yarn at my LYS's and I've wanted to buy some mohair to do the Wisp pattern on knitty but everytime I touch it I get the heebie jeebies, hee.
Does anyone have any other suggestioins, because I think I've now convinced myself that I neeeeeeed to knit this.
