So far I've made a couple felted potholders, although they aren't shrinking as much as I'd like...at this moment, they're ginormous.  I'm currently working on Kim's hats, which is interesting, as I've never worked on circular needles before, nor double pointed...haven't gotten there yet, I'm a little nervous...

Hurrah for this book!

i finally got my book - it is so beautiful - i would make everything in it if i had had a million dollars and no work or kids...i live out of the states (as you can probably tell from the times of my posts) and had to wait till someone was coming for a visit to bring it for me! (i also got weekend knitting which i love!)
but just like pretendingsanity, i also made the ribbed or 'men's' wrist warmers...
i made them a little longer so they are more like arm warmers.
by the way, illana, your sweater is amazing! i'm so impressed. it looks great on you.
here's one arm being warmed while it wrestles the DPNs to make the other:

and in this one you can see the extended length:

i made them in a really soft merino wool - but i'll admit that i think the color choice was not such a good one. they are SLIGHTLY flesh-toned and end up looking funny...but i am thinking that i will get used to it...
thanks again, gertie, for the book recommendation!

Elisha those look great! So you were able to make the thumhole--the whole glove--on double points? How? I've been thinking about this issue day and night. Thought I had a brain fart at one point but it still didn't work..please, how did you do it?!

Thanks!
Tere
ps-the yarn I bought for these appears to be the same colour as yours Smiley

Goodkarma, there's a pattern for writwarmers, men's and women's. No mittens though. But I think it is a great book (as you can see by the obssessively large number of posts I write on here, pertaining to it...its becoming a problem I think  Embarrassed)

Do you mind if I ask what size you made?

I made the second size, which is the first number in the parentheses. The sweater is actually a little big on me though. It might have to do with the heavy drape of the silk. I am making another one now and I am doing the smaller size. Thanks for the compliments!!!

It's beautiful, Illana! I love the color, too.

Did it knit up reasonably quickly, or take forever? I'm about to tackle it, and I'm a little scared by the reports of errata in the pattern. I'm not very math-minded, and get confused when things don't match up the way they're supposed to.

 Huh I made the mans' hat for my dad, and it's ginormous!  Granted, I used a size 10 needle instead of 9, but I don't think it would have made that big of a difference...did anyone else find that the hats ran a bit on the big side?

It's still warm and soft and cuddly, though  Smiley
