i don't know what to tell ya except that i tried the skirt in worsted weight with smaller needles than what was called for and it ended up still being HUGE so i ended up frogging it. so stay away from the worsted!

i just made the razor lace cami with lion brand microspun and it turned out waaaaaay nice.  i love it.  i don't know how much that stuff would hold wrinkles though....maybe stick with something cotton? good luck to you, though. 

why is it that no stores like michaels or hobby lobby have NO YARN MADE OF WOOL?Huh? where is my 100% wool?
