inspired by the eternity scarf thread, i went to this site:

http://www.suzannejuul.com/store.htm

and i am absolutely taken with the reddish turtleneck (scroll down). would it be hard to make? i figure i'd have to use a super fine gauge yarn, and i'm betting that the only way to get that fine and even a texture would be to make it using a knitting machine. i don't have one/have access to one, i also don't knit (but i do crochet). any suggestions?

would it be really hard to make something similar? what yarns would you guys recommend? (i love everything on her site, in fact. gorgeous stuff!)

tia for your help!

You could probably use Kid Silk Haze Mohair on a slightly larger needle to get that see through look.

The knitting machines which can knit smaller gauges are $500+.  Besides, I think that's probably a dk weight yarn.

Check out Karabella's use of Gossamer:
