Anytime I hear something repetitive, I think of Little Caesar's "Pizza! Pizza!" campaign.  Anyway, check out this bad boy.  A nice extension from all those pretty (and long - not south Louisiana friendly) pinwheel jackets.

Anyone with me?


Side note: Apparently, the LC franchise is running strong, I haven't seen one in years!  Sorry board members, some people grasp their fleeting youth by buying expensive cars, I just want pizza. ;(

That looks lovely but too difficult for my poor knitting skills.

I'm not a smart knitting cookie either, but I think as a team, all bumps in the proverbial road can hopefully be answered by the board. Smiley

I was looking at this pattern and love it....but 10-12 balls of boho yarn would be so expensive!  Anyone have ideas for substitutions?

ok....I just looked at elann and there are some yarns there that would work!

I need something new to kniw - and when I saw this a week or so ago I got that "feeling"... but then discarded it thinking it might be too much for my ADD knitting... but - I am printing it out right now and will take a look at the pattern at lunch to see if - 1. There is enough to keep me interested and 2. If I can find some yarn that's reasonable... Berroco - while being fairly reasonably priced has such small yardage on their skeins... but if it meets the requirements - I may be in!! I LOVE this look!!

I LOVED Little Caesars' Pizza when I was younger and there is still a lone chain in Lexington, KY on Nicholasville road, not sure where you live but if you ever get to the midwest, it's definitely worth dropping in.
Oh yeah, and I lurve the Kia Kia.

Did anyone ever come up with a good replacement yarn??? I'm still thinking of doing this... I may have to visit the LYS and see what I could use. Does Knitpicks offer anythign that would work? I've never used their yarn - but I'm tempted since I need to watch my pennies!

I ordered this yarn from elann.com: http://www.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=Queensland+Collection+Invito&Season=&Company=&Cat=ALLY&ProductType=5&OrderBy=&Count=108
The gauge is a bit off but I knit a bit loosely so it will work out.

They had a few other yarns that would work gauge-wise....here's one that might work:
http://www.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=Austermann+Mayfair+Color&Season=&Company=&Cat=ALLY&ProductType=5&OrderBy=&Count=10

The boho is nice because the color changes look so interesting...that is the hard thing to find inexpensively.
