Plus they added some new colors!

I am afraid they are discontinuing Panache, though.  Right now there are only 2 colors listed.

I made a Clapotis out of mine!  The stitches were a bit of a pain to drop, but not nearly as hard as you'd think, considering the mohair content - I just had to poke some apart w/ a DPN.  It took about a skein & a half for a full-sized one.

I'm impossible. I've knit a lot (enough actually to get m wrist so hurt i can't even knit now)

Same here - though my wrist is hurt not from knitting really, but using the mouse too much at work.  I've had to take a little break from knitting (and any repetive hand motion) to let it heal.

But I can knit again now!

I just ordered yarn for my mom & sister's x-mas presents (Eris & Rogue, respectively).  Mom's is in a cream colored Berocco comfort, and my sister's is a tweedy red Plymouth encore. 

I've been able to work on my own Rogue a bit, and on my Airy Cardigan, which is going much more quickly now that I've put the sleeves on scrap yarn.

That's so cute!  I think I have to add that to my queue.  It would make a nice gift.

Very cute!  I love the colors.

My mini-cardi is coming out too small as well, and I also don't like my yarn.  I'll probably frog it, use different yarn, and go a size up.

Very pretty!  It looks like it has a nice sheen, too.

Mine is going well - I'll try to get pictures over the weekend.  I haven't been working on it as much as I could be, but I have a few things on the needles.  I don't want to let any one peice linger for too long without being worked on, otherwise they'd never get done.

I do think this would be a pretty quick knit if I was working on it almost exclusively, though.  The last thing I did was attach the top of the pocket, and it was going faster than I expected.

Everything I'm knitting right now is for fall & winter, so this is great timing!

On the needles:
Several from Fitted Knits:
Airy Wrap-around cardigan
Boatneck Bluebell

Shopping Tunic from Twinkle's Big City Knits, though I may cave & get new needles (I'm using giant DPNs b/c they were cheap, and I'm hating it.  Size 19 double-points are awkward)

Will be on the needles soon-ish:
Rogue - for my sister for Christmas
Eris - for my mom for Christmas
Short-sleeved cardigan from Fitted Knits
Back to School vest also from Fitted knits - I have the yarn & have swatched, but haven't actualy started yet

I have the book, but I haven't made that one yet.

Have you tried checking either of the knitalongs? 

The Craftster KAL is here.

And there is another one here that is organized by pattern.

This thread has been such an inspiration!

I love this book and couldn't decide what I wanted to make first.  I started with the bulky cropped cardigan (I forget the name, and I don't have my book on me), since the yarn was cheap & readily available.  It still needs sleeves & the button band/trim, but I put it aside b/c I don't have buttons yet (ordering today).

I also started the Boatneck Bluebell (in the cascade tweed - a reddish-brown color) & the Airy Wrap sweater (in Kidsilk Haze color Liquer, double-stranded).  I couldn't decide which one of these I wanted to work on yesterday, so I sat with both projects & alternated doing sleeve increases on each.

I have yarn for the Back to School vest, but haven't started it b/c the needles I need are currently in my in-laws van & they're out of town.

I also ordered yarn for the short-sleeved cardigan, and am getting buttons today for that as well.

I must take pictures!

Very pretty!  That one is definitely on my to-do list (so is pretty much everything in this book!).

I got it a few weeks ago, but I've been working on some other stuff, and haven't gotten started on anything yet.  I just ordered some Knitpicks Swish in Merlot Heather, one of the new colors, for the Back to School Vest.  I need more handknits that I can wear to work, most of the things I've done are too casual.
