I think this is an awesome idea, Chel.
I promise to have some pics and opinions up this evening
ETA the first set of pics.
Yarn: Elann Sonata
, 100% Mercerized Cotton (shown in Victorian Grape)
My comments: A little rough to knit with, but like most cottons I hear it washes into a soft fabric (I haven't tried washing yet). The below swatch is with size 6 needles, I think I prefer a denser fabric. Colors are lovely and a very affordable yarn at $1.98 per 115 yd skein.
