That looks great chevykaylor! I can't get anywhere near gauge in the bamboo I bought for the project, so you have convinced me to try it in Sugar n' Cream. How does the Sugar n' Cream feel knitted up as a garment?
Thanks! The Sugar'n Cream yarn is ... well, it's $7-a-pound yarn! But it's 100% cotton, you can bleach it, and it's great stuff. I knitted up a Debbie Bliss sweater in it and it looks as good today as it did two years ago when it came off the needles. The El Cheapo yarn doesn't have the lovely soft hand of a luxury yarn, but the $73 savings seems to be a good trade-off. Try it! Buy a small ball first. If you hate it, frog it and make a couple of washcloths. Wal-Mart (no LYS here) has the 1-lb. cones in White and Ecru only (for $7 a hit). If you go to marymaxim.com, you can get the cones in some good colors like Navy (which I am thinking about buying, because the sweater would look great in it, and it's my sister's favorite color! Why make one when you can make two at twice the price?
). Of course, they cost more like $13 or $14.
Also, my knitting tends to be loose, so just because I couldn't get exact gauge doesn't mean you won't be able to! Please let me know how you do! Good luck!
