I'm going to make that afghan in the Cables Untangled book, the beeeeyouteeeefullllll one.
The annoying part is the 26 hanks of classic elite montera that they call for, (4-heavy worseted weight; 50% llama/50%wool; ea approx 3.5 oz/100g) it's at least $10.00 a skein!!
If my math is right, that's $260.00
No way in heck I can afford that, ever!
So I was looking on the Elann website for a substitution last night and found this
yarn but it's only 1.75 oz. so that would mean I'd have to by double the amount of yarn, right?
I am so not good with this substitution business.
Then I thought about using some cheapy yarn, but then I thought, it's such a gorgeous blanket, how can I do that to it?
Anyone have any ideas??
