Great!
Do you have any pics on your progress so far? Would be fun to see..
I've ordered my yarn from Denmark, they have a great online store for "luxurios" yarn, and it was 30% off of the kid mohair, so it'll take a week or so for the yarn to arrive. Can't wait to get started!
Since the yarn is so thin I hope it will be a great pullover for the spring, I'm a pro at knitting really thick pullovers..

This is what I have so far. Last night, I finished the front and started the back. The body of mine is a couple inches shorter, it is 19 inches instead of 21.5 (I am making the smallest size). Once you separate the front and back it just breezes by! Although the sleeves are going to get to me....

Wow, it looks great. Great colour!
The sleeves are always getting to me too, I sometimes start with doing them so I'll have the the fun part left..

I'm thinking of starting this up soon - I will be using Garnstudio's Vivaldi as a sub (58% mohair, 19% wool, 23% polyamid), which has more yardage and (therefore!) is cheaper. Tongue I'll only need 4 skeins. Woo.
My only concern is the bust size.. I'm a 33" bust, approx., and I just don't know if it'll look pretty gathering that much under the bust, when it's 40".. Huh

My yarn arrived last week, but I haven't had any time to knit, so it was just yesterday i cast-on. The first thing I notice is that I don't have any circulars in 4.0mm as I was sure I had. I decided to start with one of the sleeves and knit on straights - I can't stand knitting sleeves on dpns'.
So I'm eager to start knitting and starting with the crocus bud pattern I soon realize that it looks nothing like the original. I start over, and find out that I did a mistake with the YO, but itc still looks nothing like the original.
It slowly dawns upon me that the yarn I've chosen is much, much thinner than that in the pattern. I have this tendency of always wanting to start knitting om new projects as soon as I see them and fall in love with them, and this time I rushed so mutch I didn't even look up what yarn to use closely enough.
Anyway, I decided to keep on knitting in the yarn I'd ordered, and this far I'm really pleased with the result. It's turning out delicate, very soft and almost see-through. I usually don't like when mohair is knitted on big needles (although nr 4 isn't a big needle it still looks... I don't know how to describe it... 'airy'?) but since it won't sit tight I think it can be really beautiful.

I will add pics of my progress when I get my camera back from my brother...

My mom actually called me to tell me to knit this.  I'm thinking about it.  It will take me forever, since I have a hard time finishing adult sized clothes.

I finished a while ago, but I still haven't taken any pictures.
I will do it soon, promise.
I love how it turned out, I'm wearing it all the time and feel beautiful in it Smiley
