So it's been a long time since I've updated this, oh how busy the school year gets.
My sister is pregnant, and I of course am so excited to start knitting her things. I have a great pattern for a blanket, but it calls for Pashmina, which at (minimum) $15 a skien just isn't in my price range. What would be a good worsted weight substitute? I was thinking Debbie Bliss Baby cashmerino, but I'm not entirely sure what the weight on that is. Any other suggestions?
I hope to be more active in the community during the summer.

I guess I should start by introducing myself. My name is Wil, I'm a 20 year old student in Portland Oregon. I attend Reed College and am a Psychology Major.
I started knitting almost three years ago. The woman who was doing the costume design for the High School musical put the first needles in my hands. I progressed slowly (as most do) and quickly gave it up when I came to college. There, my HA (Housing Advisor, similar to RA) taught me how to crochet. I found it easy and fun to get into, but it quickly got boring (there is only so much you can do). So I came back to knitting, and with my experience crocheting, I was able to knit continental, thank god.
