I have almost finished Cleo from last summer's KNITTY.  I just need to knit the i-cords (I lost the dpn's I bought, have to get new ones this weekend) and sew it up. I plan on making another in different colors, maybe blues and greens, when I have the time.

I chose the red and the orange (same yarn that she used in the pattern), however, I thought that it was the same colors too, I don't think that she used the orange that I chose, I think she used 2 contrasting reds.  I had to order it online and it was kind of difficult to find, I ended up ordering it from a store wool-tyme in Canada.  It was cheap to knit, about $17, including shipping.

It wasn't difficult to knit, only actually took me a couple of days, but I did frog the triangles a couple of times due to the fact that I wasn't counting properly.  It's definitely a great weekend/long car ride project.  I knit most of it on a plane journey.

Feel free to pm me if you have any q's after you start it

I'm confused on the Cleo pattern...it says to k2, yo, k2tog then seed stitch to the last 4 stitches then do k2tog, yo, k2...but that's 5 stitches...2 for the k2tog...1 for the yo, and 2 to knit...that's 5. Am I doing something wrong, or...did you come across this also?

-----edit

OMG!!!! I've been knitting for more than a year...and I finally get it!! >_< Everytime I read yo, I always assumed you were suppose to yo and knit...ok...well..shoot!! ...aiosjdfiaoasefaEWRT$#^#$65346se!!

I just finished my cleo! I used Soy Silk Phoenix which is a yarn made from the tofu making process! The website is www.soysilk.com and I got the yarn on sale directly from Southwest Trading Company. It's great to work with and it was easy to get gauge. Just thought I would share my excitement with everyone :-)
