Need a Substitute for Cashmere Yarn
I am planning my 2007 projects , knit only from my huge stash and want to start the Mobuis Cowl by Cat Bordhi that was featured on Knitty Gritty and I find myself already against the wall

I have sworn to knit from my stash until it is under control and it is only January 13th ( go figure that date) and I need yarn that I do not have in my stash. I was all set to buy it and the thought struck me....... you need to knit from your stash , rather than buy more yarn. Soooooooo
here I am needing a good subsitute for cashmere. I don't nave any in my stash so here I am. ( I knew this would happen , but this soon ....... geezzzzzzzz!!! I have to be strong )

Anyone have any ideals for subing the Fleece 4 ply Cashmere for anything else.

I have tons of hand painted STR in my stash in Med weight........will that work............... Im Desperate........

That pattern works in just about any yarn, either something lightweight, or use larger needles for a lacy effect. Try some as a flat swatch in the pattern to see, just remember to purl back on the w/s row.
