Thanks for the yarn suggestions. I was thinking about a cotton/silk blend for the Roped Shell. I'm thinking that in Navy and something (not white or red, too much contrast I think) it will look perfectly at home on our sailboat this summer! Thanks for the fantastic pattern, and for inspiring me to stretch my skills!!

I think I found a great substitute for the Luxury! I'm really excited.

Wow, thanks so much for the response! That was very thoughtful of you. I'm just itching to get started. I've had the magazine out on my office desk all morning and predictably, I'm not getting much work done! :)

I think I may go for a blue/green combo in the Knit Picks Shine Sport River and Grass colors, although Hollyberry and Willow would come pretty close to the original pattern colors, which are quite lovely. It's so reasonably priced I might get both and decide which I like best in swatches!

Glad to hear you think the Silkience will work well. I plan on ordering this when the budget allows. Love the design, thank you!

I had been thinking about the CotLin for Wakame and it's nice to know that you concur. Plus, if it doesn't work, it certainly isn't a huge investment.

Just saw the Wakame Tunic and decided to do it. Then I saw the cost of the material and......well....!!

Then I read your ideas for yarn substituiton and suddenly I CAN do this now! Thanks for saving my gas AND my stash budget!!

I love your Wakame tunic and am knitting it in madil Eden (a 100% bamboo yarn) and it is coming out beautifully and on gauge. It is also on sale at yarn.com right now, if anyone is looking for a bamboo yarn that is affordable. Thanks for the pattern!

I recently finished knitting your wakame tunic using two stranded of zephyr (wool/silk) held together. I know it doesn't have the drape of the original yarn, but I think it turned out great, and I was able to use up two clearly different dyelots (I know, I know) that were taunting me from the stash.

I really appreciated the novel construction, and just wanted to let you know!
