i've been wanting to knit up my so called scarf (http://www.sheepinthecity.prettyposies.com/archives/000079.html). it calls for the multicolored manos del uruguay but, at the moment, that yarn is out of my budget.
i noticed debbie bliss soho has a similar look to it (thick and thin and multicolored). i was wondering if it would make an equal substitute.

any ideas or stories of your experiences with either yarn would be appreciated! :waving:

As long as you get the same gauge, you can use any yarn, but Debbie Bliss is a good sub.

From touching Soho, they are VERY similar. And webs has it for 2.99 a ball at yarn.com right now, so you can get 2 balls (equiv to manos) for 1/2 the price of manos!
