there's a sewn poncho in the latest issue of Bust. Seems pretty easy, although I don't sew, so I'm not sure.  Maybe you could try that. Wish I could sew!

Howdy, Paris Loop-ers!  I know it's late in the game, but I'm going to join the knit-along.  I bought my yarn for the project today - 3 skeins of Crystal Palace Musique, which is a lovely wool/cotton/acrylic blend and is multi-colored (red/orange/burgundy etc.).  I think the gauge matches the Cicco pretty well (neither of my LYS's have the Cicco).  I was thinking of using Berocco Softy, but on the advice of 615bride (and after checking it out more closely in the LYS today) I decided it was not really going to work - it's too thin overall, as 615bride observed.  I will probably cast on this weekend (or possibly sooner) and will keep y'all posted on how it's going!  I'm excited after seeing how some of them have turned out!

615bride, I am still here, still reading and still not finished with my Paris Loop that I started ages ago. I think your Loop looks awesome and I am so jealous I didn't do mine in red. Yours looks positively ravishing.

Here is the problem with mine, I think I must have um, done something wrong, but I don't care because I can't stand knitting with the Gedifra Cicco. It is too slippery for me. And it seems to take forever to knit!

But I am not stopping, nor frogging. I hope to be done with it before hubby and I make our Italy trip next week!

I will post a picture so you guys can see how it turned out, but I am warning you, I know I have turned my project inside out at least twice, so my knit versus purl stitches are not going to look like the instructions. But oh well!

lovely yarn, annalou!  what kind did you use?  nice job; it looks very warm...  I'm wondering, for all y'all who have made the Loop - did you block it when done?  Mine is finished but I'm wondering whether or not to block it.  (I posted this question on the Completed Projects board too).  I will post a photo of my finished Loop soon.

Thanks.  I used double strands of Lions Brand Homespun until the final bit when I went to 1 strand.  I modified the pattern a bit--adding the slits so I could move my hands and adding a ribbing at the top so that it would keep my neck a bit warmer.  I didn't block it, and all has been well--great for fall weather.
