So I'm finally jumping on the bandwagon and knitting the clapotis from the knitty.com site. Here's the link to refersh everyone's memory: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html
Anyhoo, so I look up the yarn - Lorna's Laces - and realize I can't justify such a splurge. I know it only asks for 3 skeins, but I'm a $5/skein kinda gal: anything above $5 and I start shivering with anxiety.
Anyhow, the yarn is a 50% wool/50% silk blend and I love how it seems to drape. I also love the variegated look of the FO. So is there a less expensive alternative to this yarn that wll provide a similar drape and colorway?
