Hmmm, I dunno, she might have enough if she's using the yarn at a single strand instead of doubled. More ribbing, yes, but also more yarn, a smaller needle, but my bet is not as small as half...it'd make the ribbing less bulky, among other things, and less tight, and perhaps the bulge problem might be lessened...it might be worth the bother of trying a swatch...

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.
Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
