I don't think anyone's reading the Knitalong thread anymore so here's a pic of my Paris Loop in Gedifra Cicco. I have enough to make another one in olive green. It's so comfy!

Why can't puffins eat pancakes instead?

Looks great!  Did you shorten yours at all?  I've made 3 so far, all different lengths and colors.  I went a little nuts when I found the Cicco in Germany, so I'll be "looping" for a good long while.  Everyione loves them...so comfortable, warm and fashionable, without the bulkiness of a poncho (but I love them too!).  I really do need to post a picture of my daughters and I in our "Loops".

it looks lovely, 615bride!  I am curious - what kind of things do you usually wear it with?  I am considering making one (in lieu of a poncho) but have this feeling I might not wear it...

Sorry I haven't checked this thread in a while. To answer the questions:

1) Yes, I shortened it a bit. Not too much. I might make it a bit longer next time.

2) I wear it with jeans and a t-shirt. I get lots of compliments on it which kind of surprises me...

I love my Loop! I'll probably the other 4 balls of the Cicco to make another one (olive green).

I've been eyeing the Paris Loop on Magknits.com for a while now but am so far unable to find a yarn shop that carried Gedifra Cicco. They've all had their closeouts on the yarn but in my local store and the online vendors I've checked.

Does anyone know of a vendor currently selling Gedifra Cicco (online of otherwise)?  If not, any suggestions for comparable yarn?
