Choices, choices

I'm looking for yarn for my next sweater, the VK Cable Cardi.
There's 20sk of DB Cashmerino for sale on eBay in a beautiful lilac. As much as I liked the color and I love the feel of the yarn, I'm eBay-shy after the last experience. Besides I need DK, not aran weight.

So, a trip to Elann brought up 3 possibilities:
  • #1: Schoeller Stahl Morea @ $2.98/sk
    My first choice because of the Merino/Microfiber blend. But, it's sport weight so I'll need to find a different project for it.

  • #2: Filatura Di Crosa 501 @ $3.57/sk
    Superwash Merino is my second choice. Unfortunately, they're out of the color that I want, Cornflower Blue.

  • #3: Gjestal Ren Ny Ull Superwash Sport @ $2.33/sk
    Eventhough the name says "sport", it's really DK weight.
I have 16sk of Nordic Blue Superwash Sport in my shopping cart.

Not sure what I'm waiting for--maybe to add more before I check out?


  • Oooh! They're all gorgeous!

  • I like the color you picked out for that nordic superwash. Did you see the new Austermann Acapella angora blend? I LOVE IT and the pattern you get for free with it! Uh oh.

  • I like the superwash sport you picked out too. And I think the color will look really great. You're so ambitious! You turn out these cabled cardies and kick a** socks like it's a trip to the candy store. Well, good luck with it. Can't wait to see it on the needles. :)
