Kmart Bargain and EBTKS

Hi all,
I think I scored the biggest bargain ever. A ball of Paton's Jet for 5 cents. yes, 5 cents. Light blue, brought it up to counter. Is this correct? Yup. Cool.

Am embarking upon the Everything but the Kitchen Sink sweater from Yarnplay. If anyone has any 10-12ply (worsted) remnants in black or jeweltones that you want to get rid of, I'll take it. If you think that it can make one round in this sweater, 180stitches on 5mm that would be fabulous. I am only using natural fibers in this jumper, unless the yarn is a wool/acrylic blend or something. I am repurposing the beautiful blue Jo Sharp silk aran that I purchased on the yarn train (Yarns on Collie) as the base color for it.

Also, I noticed that Panda has a yarn with similar colors to some of the multicolored Jet. The Panda yarn starts with a C, and it is acrylic I believe.
