EEP..
I suck..
I gave my hubby a big talk today about our expenses and spending.. and.. uhm..

I just ordered TEN FREAKING BALLS of cotlin for this sweater(know its not giong to be enough.. will get more when time comes) 

I am such an awful wife. At least I have a sweetie who will just chuckle and shake his head at his wife who spends all her money on books and yarn. what a nerd.

I am not a HUGE fan of the cotlin colours, but the key lime was the closest to something I will wear frequently and that looks nice on me. I can't wait!

I'm making mine with some cheap Bernat SuperSaver stuff.  I was too impatient to put in an order online and wait for it to be delivered, so I went to Michael's.  We'll see how it turns out.   Wink

I used Elann's peruvian highland silk for a baby sweater recently and I loved working with it.  It was really nice to work with and had a very pleasant sheen.  I'll certainly be strongly considering it, if my IK ever arrives!   Huh

ooohhhh that Key Lime CotLin is calling my name! Cheesy

I love that Key Lime color too!  Has anyone used Cotlin for anything already?  I know it's a relatively new yarn, so maybe not...but if anyone has experience with it I would love to hear before ordering:)

Well, I was also thinking of using cotlin for a new sweater, but it seems knitpicks is already out of it!  I wish they would update their collection and keep some more spring yarns on hand...

I'm thinking of going with Cascade's Pima Tencel. Although I have a bunch of projects stacked up, so we'll see if I get to it anytime soon! LOL I do love this pattern though, I can never have too many v-neck cardi's!!!  Grin Can't wait to see what you guys do with the different substitutions!

I just bought a bunch of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Candy Apple. I was going to use Truffle (to have an FO the same color as the IK pic), but Candy Apple is better for my wardrobe and complexion.
The color is nice; not candy-colored, but a muted brick red.

I'm thinking of Classic Elite Classic Silk, has anyone felt this yarn?

I'm just not sure if it would have the same drape...

For some reason I really want to make this in Bamboo yarn (probably something to do with the Joni-Mitchell-tree-museum-connection), but they're all so expensive.

Hah! ME too!!! I was scouting bamboo for a super-soft Clapotis! The minute I saw this I thought it would be awesome in a cotton blend, with drape (like the Pima/Tencel I mentioned earlier.) I think KPixie has SWTC bamboo for 13$ a skein (250yds per ball.) Which isn't too bad, but I like 5 bucks a ball better when you hafta buy so many, though! LOL
