I am using Paton's Cotton perle for the Kal.
I am still on the hunt for a yarn. Wish me luck.
I am using Casino II which is a cotton/rayon yarn that I got at Yarn Barn of Kansas. It only comes in natural, so I hope to be able to dye the finished sweater when I'm done. I hope to get this finished in time to wear to Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival the first weekend in May.
I found my yarn, Debbie Bliss dk (100% cotton) in a beautiful purple. I knitted my swatch and washed and dried it and my gauge is 20 st and 30 rows. I figure that is close enough...only 4 rows shy of the 34.
I am starting it today after I get home from work. I am so excited to get this project going. This is my first KAL and my second top down sweater.
Good Luck to everyone and I hope to see pictures posted of the various sweaters in the different yarns. Exciting! :)
