substituting yarn or just needle size?
Ok, so I want to knit this dress for my daughter: but the pattern requires a gauge of 20 sts=4 in with size 6 needles using worsted weight. I have this wonderful yarn I want to use but I think it's sport weight because it knits up at 24 sts=4 in on size 10 needles.

If you were me, would you just double the yarn, keep going up needle size or - sigh! - just find a different yarn to use? :(
