I have been searching allover for a reasonably priced sub. The pattern calls for Lornas Laces, Lion and Lamb, it would be $100 to make thise!
So I found one girl who knitted it double stranded with a lace weight yarn, and it looks pretty good. She did have to make it a little smaller since it was lace weight, instead of worsted.
Then someone suggested to me I use Shimmer (from knitpicks), which is a lace weight and to knit it triple strand, to get the "worsted" effect.
If you look at the pattern it consists of dropping stitches, and I am a little concerned about how that would work/look with three strand of yarn. What do you guys think?
For the record...Noro Silk Garden, Koigu, Artyarns, and a couple others were suggested to me. But you have to buy more to get the yardage, and it ends up costing just as much as the Lornas Laces.
I even considered splurging on the Lornas LAces, but I can't find it in stock online anywhere
This is just bugging me. hehe
