Thanks GrumpyGramma for your post! I appreciate it.
This will give you the specifics for the afghan. If this is wayyyy out of the realm of possible, let me know! I don't want a heavy afghan. I'd just like to know how many skeins of yarn I need to get to make the afghan this size.
I'd like to use larger needles than 4. 13 is the suggested size with the original yarn. Needle size suggestions are good, too! Hope this all helps.
I'd like to use Berroco Andean Mist yarn:
Yarn Weight:Lace Blend:74% Alpaca 26% Silk Needles:4.00mm-4.00mm Ball Weight:25g Yarn Length:150m (164 yds) Gauge:22-16 stitches, 28-22 rows to 10cm
