Hi all, I'm new here!
I'm a pretty new knitter and I've just started to break away from scarves. My problem comes from buying Rebecca magazines which have really lovely patterns and use expensive yarn.
There is a mohair bubble dress I'd love to make
, but even the cheapest mohair yarns...in short, are not cheap enough for me. If I could go buy TWO of what I wanted to make for the price of making one, that's a no go.
Here is a little picture of the dress
If pictures are a no-no, here is a link to the page where the picture is, the second dress from the left.
Are there any halo-y substitutes like Paton's Divine but worsted weight instead of bulky? I might talk to my teacher and see if I could swing bulky and adjust the pattern. Think that's a more viable option than finding cheap mohair like yarn? Should I give up and buy goats or sell my soul to the devil for yarn?
