I promise I'll get this yarn subbing down one of these days...
OK, so I want to make this ADORABLE jacket from Debbie Bliss' The Baby Knits Book. I think this will be a good intro to cable stitch.
My question: the pattern calls for her merino aran yarn, which is a little on the $$$ side (especially since I'll need 6 balls of the stuff, and I'd like to get a few extra to make a matching hat.) So, I was looking at knitpick's Andean Silk. It seems to be the same weight...aran and worsted are like the same, no? :?? Do you think this yarn sub will work?
Oh, and another question, has anyone here used Knitpick's Palette? I want to make matching teddy bears for DD and my friend's son (the babies share a birthday, so we do corney stuff like that.) Is this stuff soft? I was wondering how it knits up...I the colors, and it's el-cheapo, which my wallet even more. haha.
