1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: IK Gatsby Girl Gauge (GGG) Question on: July 31, 2006 12:56:17 PM
thank you!

i should know better...the golden rule of gauge checking.  i'm thinking of using one of these 2 yarns from elann.com

peruvian highland silk http://secure.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=elann%2Ecom+Peruvian+Highland+Silk&Season=&Company=&Cat=&ProductType=5&OrderBy=&Count=10

or the peruvian pure alpaca http://secure.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=elann%2Ecom+Peruvian+Pure+Alpaca&Season=&Company=&Cat=NEW&ProductType=&OrderBy=&Count=1
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / IK Gatsby Girl Gauge (GGG) Question on: July 29, 2006 03:36:31 PM
okay, i LOVE the gatsby girl pullover in the new IK mag.  -- found here: http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/preview/2006_fall.asp

but i can't bear spending $80 for a sweater, so i want to substitute yarns.  but my problem is this:
1) IK says use rowan cashshoft DK -- gauge 28sts & 36rows/4" on sizes 4 and 3 needles.
2) Rowan says that cashsoft DK's gauge is actually 5.5sts/1" or 22sts/4" on size 6 needles.

so do i buy a DK weight substitute and knit really tightly on size 4 needles?  do i buy a fingering weight yarn and knit regularly on size 4 needles?  is there a possibility IK made a typo and really i should be on the larger needles?


or if anyone has any specific yarn subsitution suggestions that would be amazing.

thanks in advance.

this is really beautiful.  i don't know anything about woodburning at all, but i really love your design.  plus the subtle color changes in the sky and the details of the ground.  did it take a long time to get these results?

those are BEAUTIFUL!  was it hard to do?  because i want pointy shoes but none that i find are sassy enough.  and yours have the perfect amount of both sass and class.  absolutely amazing work.
