Yet another new member!

Hey everyone!

Just joined (obviously) and figured I'd introduce myself.

My name's Trine, I'm 18 and live in Denmark, and I LOVED the Summertime Tunic ever since I saw it for the first time in the new IK mag (which, btw, is so worth every penny), but since I have quite a few projects on my needles at the moment, I didn't want to start another one.
But you probably know the feeling; what's another project, right? ;)

I've got a gift certificate that I'm going to use tomorrow to buy some contrast yarn for a sweater I'm working on, but there'll be plenty left over - probably enough to buy yarn for this project! :) I'm thinking of using Garnstudio's Safran, because it's cheap and the yardage's good, the gauge is almost spot-on (23 spi instead of 22 spi, but I'm a smaller bust than 33½", so it's all good) - but it's 100% cotton. Egyptian cotton, but nevertheless. I've never used this before, and normally I'd just make it in wool, but I want something I can actually use during the summer! ;)

Is anyone else using 100% cotton? I'm concerned about the sag-factor and the drape...
I've got my eye on some 50/50 cotton/acrylic as well, but I really like Garnstudio's yarns - it's not expensive, and so far I've only had good experiences with their yarns.

Anyway, can't wait to get started. :)

I can't wait to see what you end up choosing Trine! I went with some Elann Callista and I'm really liking it.
