I love, love, love that top, but was put off by the cost of the yarn. Feminist, how was it that you chose that particular yarn? Aylaane, looks like yours is going to be really pretty. Can't wait to see it when it is done!

Aylaane, how may lots did you buy? None of the pictures come up, so I am curious as to how many yards per skein there are and how many of this yarn I would need.... Thanks!

I just got one lot of three skeins. My LYS owner told me that when substituting yarn, weight was more important than yardage, so I got three 100g skeins. Because it's a varigated yarn, I'm not worried about dye lot if I have to buy more. There is no dye lot stamped on the tag.

It looks like the image server is down for the yarn I bought, so I took a picture of my last unwound hank to show you. I took the picture of my progress when I was switching skeins.

I got a bunch of it on sale at WEBS. It is cotton though, not ribbon so it may not turn out so good. I've started it but I'm at work so have to wait till I get home with my camera to take pictures.

Feminist - I am dying to see it when you get it done, to see how it looks in the cotton. I really want to knit this, but I also am not a ribbon yarn fan. I have been looking at some of my other bulky yarn choices... maybe one of the bulky yarns from KP. I just don't know. Too many choices out there.

Anyone else done with their top yet???

I kinda don't like knitting with this yarn on big needles. Maybe I need to modify and use smaller needles, like 11 or something. It's coming out kinda loose. I'll definatly have to wear something undeath this so I don't scare people :rollseyes:
