a yarn switch
I am trying to find a more resonably priced yarn that can take the place of crystal palace, musique and fizz. I would appreciate any sugestions. My grandma would like to use wersted (sp?) but is having a hard time figuring the adjustment since she had never heard of or seen crystal palace before.

well...musique is a bulky it seems so she could probably use two strands of worsted to get the right size. it says it uses a 10.5-11 needles and swatches at 2.5-3.5 stitches per inch.

i think fizz is just an eyelash or fun fur type yarn so just about any of those will work.

what are you trying to make?
