OK, so they're really more pre-WWI, but stripey warmness is something I'm a fan of regardless of the era. [livejournal.com profile] bexi posted links to sweaters on that website, and I found these by poking around.

How much yarn do you think is required for those? The sample is made with Karabella Aurora 8, but the page doesn't give amounts, natch. The directions say one skein of black and two skeins of CC, but how much is in a skein? Blah!

Do you think 100 yards of black and 200 yards of CC would be enough? I'm thinking yes, especially since Ravelry tells me that these knit up as fitting a US size 10 or 11 ladies foot. I'm a 7.5/8, so I'll have to do some resizing.

Also, the note "Use worsted weight yarn knit tightly on a #6 needle" gives me pause, as I usually knit worsted weight on a US 6. Am I just a weirdo? Possibly. That's not all that tightly knit.

I believe I told myself I'd do NaCoFiMo this month, too. And finish some writing. *laughs*
