Intro and a Yarn Sub Idea!

Hello - I'm Robin and I've gotten to know Maryanne through a number of KALs - Fitted Knits, the Sexy Knitters Club and most recently, Knitting Lingerie Style! Looking forward to get to know Kasia and my fellow joiners(I know I'm early.)

After Maryanne told me about this KAL, I started thinking about it more and more, and then about yarns that could work well for this great pattern. I was thinking of using my Tess Designer Yarns "Silk and Ivory" for this - I think the cinnamon color might look nice for this. Thoughts?

Hey Robin! NIce to meet you! I absolutely love your yarn! Looks perfect for this sweater (Maryanne can confirm to you that pink and me don't mingle :P)

Thanks, Kasia! I can do pink on occasion but I thought the copper would look nice in this design!

I am going to use Tess Yarn Superwash Merino, which is a worsted weight. I am trying to work from the stash and a still figuring out color. The yarn you are thinking of a sport weight. The color is lovely. I am interested in knowing how your gauge works out.

The color is gorgeous! I usually decide to knit in black (my soul is punk rock), then I rely on others to convince me to knit in a more dynamic color. You may be doing it! If Tess is at the fiber festival in Crystal Lake, IL this Saturday maybe I'll get a chance to meet the yarn in person... I might just be convinced to give up on black!
