That looks great! The purl scarf is definitely on my To Do list from this book. I've made one of the men's scarves, the tea cozy, and the Hourglass Sweater so far, but there are still about 6 things I really want to make Smiley Next on my list: the stuffed bunny and the Airy Scarf (and maybe another hourglass sweater....)

I have to agree on the wristwarmers.  I made mine out of a yummy alpaca and they're veeery soft and cozy.  I like to wear them for driving or indoors when I'm just a wee bit cold.  Especially if I'm wearing a t-shirt or something and don't want to put on a jacket/sweater.

yahaira, sorry you missed it! I guess it was a brief sale- I bought the book during the sale, and it should arrive soon!

Yahiara, you should check out www.zooba.com. I just got the book for 9.99 w/ free shipping from them (it's a membership thing, 9.99 a month and one book per month w/ free shipping)


I'm so happy to finally have this book. I had checked it out of the library a couple of times.  I keep looking at the pictures and drooling

I made the Men's Zipped Raglan a little while ago, and it turned out ok I think (for a first sweater at least!):

During blocking


In action


I did't have too much trouble with it after I read other postings about how to join the sleeves to the body.  I used a much heavier/stiffer wool than the pattern called for (it was much less expensive than the gorgeous wool used in the book) so I didn't fold over the collar to make a double layer because it was too bulky.
