Newb to the forum so if this is in the wrong spot please move.
Okay, so here’s the issue. I’m knitting a shawl that calls for one skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk
[438 yd/100g hank, Gauge: 28 sts per 4 inches on US2 (3mm) needles]
and I’m substituting Knit Picks Shimmer
[440 yards/50 gram hank, Gauge: unknown but it is lace weight]
Am I doomed? Will I need additional yarn (the yarn I’m using is being clearanced out, hence the panic attack)?
The project calls for US9 needles but to get the correct gauge I’m having to take it down to US7, but I’m a tight knitter.
Oh the panic! This is my first lace project and I just want to get it right.
