Beautiful job. I'm a big fan of doilies...working on another one myself right now. Smiley

your blanket is awesome! I've been thinking about doing this blanket myself. Smiley

Both me and my mother love this blanket! Wish i could knit, or crochet.

You could probably learn how to crochet if you got the Happy Hooker book. There are EXCELLENT instructions in there!

absolutely gorgeous! I had considered joining your knitalong awhile back, but wasn't in a blanket mood. Smiley I love this pattern though.

That's really pretty! I have a Hobby Lobby near me, but haven't tried the Yarn Bee brand yet, but now maybe I will!  Cheesy

Thanks for the suggestions, girls, I think I'll be able to find something! Smiley

Emms, you mentioned the "drape" of the garment - I'm glad you did, because that's primarily the thing I was most worried about when substituting the yarn. How did you know that a silk/rayon blend could be sub'd for a cotton/acrylic/visoce blend? Could you recommend a website or book that discusses this topic? Thanks again!

Well I've never knitted a sweater before, so I have a couple of questions.

1. Would this be a good first sweater?
I'm a bit intimidated at the thought of knitting a sweater, but in some ways, I figure I might as well just TRY it instead of whining about it - right? Wink

2. What yarn could I substitute?
I would probably end up making the Large size, which is 13 skeins of the suggested yarn (Artful Yarns Olympic, a cotton/viscose/acrylic blend) - that adds up to about $103, which I'm not willing to pay. However, since I've never knitted an actual garment before, I don't know exactly how to substitute the yarn. I know that it knits up at 4.75 sts/1 in, so it should be a worsted weight yarn. But unless I can find another yarn with those exact fibers in it, how would I know what other types of yarn would work?  Plain cotton?  Acrylic?

Thanks so much for any input! I really appreciate it.

littlesailor what yarn and color are you going to use? Hope your beads get there soon! Smiley

Here's mine! I've been really horrible about posting this. I finished it about a week ago.  Embarrassed

I used Rowan Cashsoft DK in "Mirage". This is the first hat I've ever made, and the first time I used beads. It took me a couple of tries, but once I got the hang out it, it was a pretty fast knit. I plan on making a few more of these for gifts.
