Hi, I'm new here, great site.
Someone has asked me to knit a baby ensemble including blanket, sweater, leggings, booties, hat and mittens, requiring about 1500 yards of yarn, needle size 10, gauge 14-15 st per 4".
I am a slight yarn snob (if I had my way I would make this ensemble in super chunky cashmerino
). I don't want to compromise on quality but I don't want this lady to have to spend $100 on yarn.
Has anyone used the Lion Brand baby Homespun? It's the right color and gauge...I just don't want it to turn out like crap or fall apart in the washer.
