yarn substitution question
So, I'm thinking about making the Peek-a-Boob tank from Knitty. I found the yarn that the pattern asks for on this site.

My question: I really like the Twist from knitty.com. Because it's also DK weight, does this mean that it'll knit up the same? Can I use this as a substitution? It seems so different from the stuff that the pattern asks for, but really like this other yarn. Would you risk it, or should I suck it up and use the Sirdar Country Yarn?

This will be my next step up, project-wise. So, I don't want to mess it up.

tks,
~Sharon
