Well, this is my second attempt to post, but I don't think the first one went through, but if so, sorry for the double post!
I'm new here .... linked here by an internet friend JulieAnne who has been holding my hand through most of my projects! My name is Brandie. I'm a sahm to my 2 daughters and a great guy! I learned to knit last Janaury when I was determined to make a pair of booties for an expecting friend! After trial and error, the first pair was finished and I was hooked on knitting! Right now I'm just kind of moving from project to project as the fancy strikes me (and as pregnancy announcements are made!).
But, I also have a question! I want to make a matching blanket/cardigan for a little girl. The pattern recommends that I use Joseph Galler Pashmina ... but the blanket alone calls for 6 skeins, and at $55 a skein, that blanket is not in my budget! LOL!
Any recommendations on a nice, soft, pretty yarn that might do the trick and is a lot less money?
