View Full Version : Yarn Suggestions???

12-09-2007, 01:57 AM
So, for Hannukah, I want to get yarn to make Hannah (http://www.magknits.com/Dec07/patterns/hannah.htm)from the new magknits. Because that's probably going to be the only yarn I'll ask for, and it only needs 106 yards, I've decided that I want something really lovely and nice and maybe splurge-y.

Any suggestions? The pattern calls for a bulky yarn. The gauge is 15 sts and 20 rows = 4" on US size 10 needles.

I've been browsing online a bit, but nothing's really jumped out at me.

Oooh. I like yarn shopping.... ^_^

There this: http://yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=1589 It's a merino wool/cashmere blend

Or this: http://yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=3805

THIS one is gorgeous: http://yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=2958

I dunno. Lots of fun stuff out there. (Notice when you said "splurge-y" my mind jumped straight to cashmere and blends.... ^_^)
