I really want to make Viveka (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTviveka.html)from knitty. But...if I use the yarn they call for, it'd be over $160! :shock: :ick: :pout: Which is waaayyy too much.

Suss Love (http://sussdesigns.com/knittingSite/productDetail.php?prodID=287) is 100% Tactel Nylon with a gauge of 5 stitches and 6 rows per inch on US 6-8.

Any ideas??

I was thinking of maybe using Malabrigo, but I'd really have to fiddle with the pattern or with the needles because the gauge would be off.

Thanks!:muah:

I'd do a search at www.yarndex.com and at www.elann.com .
