I have a question along these lines.
When I pick out a pattern and I want to use a yarn that’s not what the pattern calls for, I usually ask the sales person what is equivant to the one written. Or I pick out yarn, and then ask if the pattern I chose can be done with that yarn. Then she will tell me what yarns are OK and how much I need. she usually will determine this (I think) by the gauge…what will make the gauge correct between the yarn and the pattern requirements. Can I do this with out the sales person?
I think this is about 100 questions in the condensed version.
You are all terrific…my many questions have be answered by someone (s).
