Well I did it

I ordered the Lana Grossa Lino.

The colors that I ordered are:

Grey (#0002)
3 skeins

Ecru (#0016)
3 skeins

Green Khaki (#0018)
3 skeins

Tan (#0004)
3 skeins

Storm Grey (#0019)
3 skeins

Brown (#0006)
3 skeins

Yellow (#0008)
3 skeins

I'm thinking that the colors will go well together. The yellow will be an accent color. I didn't want to start out with anything too bright and jarring. My son can be very picky. Although, he says he loves his new sweater even though I think it looks like crap. hehe

So, what do y'all think? Price? Colors? Number of skeins? Nick is 6 and only weighs a lil over 50lbs. He is tall and thin.

Well, for DK weight yarn, I don't think you need a whole lot. I mean, there's a lot of yards on one ball...If you are doing a vest, maybe 600 or 700? A sweater, a little more than that....

Green Khaki and Tan are nice. So are the grays. That Yellow is rather a disgusting color.
