Hello! I just joined this KAL... I purchased this tendances a couple months ago because I wanted to make this sweater, but I was not able to find the yarn (quietude), and have been looking for substitutes. I am thinking about the following as substitutes:

- Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Aran Weight
- Jaeger Matchmaker Merino Aran Weight
- RYC Cashsoft Aran (Mole)
- maybe Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran?

It's very hard to find the similar color to the original one... I really like the color of the original sweater.

Now, I am wondering if I should order the original yarn from Holland, or I should use some substitute yarns from one of the above. Any suggestions? Thank you!
