I went to knit night tonight and asked Bobbie at the LYS what she thought about subbing the yarn weight...she said she really couldn't say how much more we would need what she suggested is...get a skein and do a gauge swatch she said like if you get 6sts per inch well then it will only be 24" wide and prolly not big enough...she is thinking we would have to stay with the original if we change the yarn weight...I think the original has 5 charted blocks I gotta look at it again..

She said we should be able to sub it but we gotta do a gauge swatch.

I'm thinking of doing mine in a dark purple and creme color...

I don't think changing the weight would change the outcome of the blocks in appearance though...

Another thing is I looked at their Encore DK it's machine washable and you get 150 yards for $3.20. I'm thinking this might be how I go, that way if I need more I can easily get it...and if I buy to much they will take the rest back

Gina~I like that idea too...I would recommend doing the above as well get a gauge swatch to figure out the size it would be

I'm so excited that ya'll are so excited

I really like the first 3 you posted. The evergreen w/ cream, dark burgundy w/ cream , and the navy blue w/ cream.

I'm was leaning toward a burgundy or red w/ cream. But after seeing the evergreen... I could go there!

Artlady, don't apologize! You're not the only one who hasn't committed yet, and either way, your experience is valuable! I love the color combos you posted!
I'm hoping to benefit from someone else's gauge swatching to get an idea of what yarn I want to use, since it will definitely be a little while before I can start on this.

Dollyce, I love that you're contributing your knowlege to the forum! Keep it up. Great color combos, btw! I'm looking for something in a really deep/dark burgundy with maybe a cream or oatmeal color or maybe even something more muted. Does KP have any really DARK burgundies? The hollyberry is too bright.

Plymouth Encore makes a really dark burgundy. I made my DH a hat out of it.

Thanks, Jan! Do you remember if it was color 999 or another one? It's SO hard to tell online and I don't have an LYS.

I don't remember exactly and of course I didn't put the number when I put it online. I am going to my LYS Knit Night tomorrow so if you can wait I will see if they still have it and tell you what it is. I think I have a few yards left I can take with me. Keep fingers crossed they do!

ETA: this is the hat I made with it, but the color may be off a little. You want it darker than this?
