Okay now that I’ve got you to read this :lol: I seriously do need some yarn advice.
I am starting my mom’s christmas present, its called a ‘Moderne Log Cabin Blanket’. It’s in the Mason Dixon book, anyway it calls for Silky Wool by Elsbeth Lavold, 1.75 oz (50g) balls, ea. approx 192 yds (176 m), wool/silk. It has 4 colors, color A calls for 4 balls and colors B-D call for 5 balls.
Now, my wonderful mother is sensitive to wool so I asked the lady at the yarn store what I could use instead and she suggested I use 100% cotton. She figured out how many balls I would need (yikes!!) so I bought 4 skeins @ $5.25 ea. to start.
The thing is that the yarn is very thin, I started it up last night and it just seems like it’s going to be quite fragile as it’s quite flimsy and all. Did I make the right choice here? Is it going to thicken up when I get all of it put together?
Oops, I just looked at the cotton yarn and it is the same ‘weightage’ as what is originally called for but wouldn’t it be a thicker feel being wool/silk?
I thank you for all of your help and time in this endevour. :lol:
