Update ~ thx to everyone for your suggestions. I'm still don't see a suitable choice for me and I don't have the time or energy to do a lot of searching so I will postpone this til November. I'll be around checking out everyone's progress so when I'm ready I've got some examples. Thx again. ;D
ok ~ I was all set to make mine but now have a dilemna. I went to my LYS to p/u my yarn but it wasn't in yet. Then I was informed that the yarn I choose is too heavy. Then I realized that I hadn't ordered enough since the Takhi Cotton is 106yd a skein and I need 225 yd. Help!!
I really am not interested in the KnitPicks Telemark but that is comparable in cost. I don't have the funds for the Louet but I really want to make this lovely item. Any suggestions would be appreciated so that I can get started.
Thx ~ talk w/you later.
