I also agree that your sweater looks great with jeans.  That sweater looks good on everyone!  I'm tempted to buy the book for that pattern.

I have the Good housekeeping magazine that had some of these patterns in it and I made the Rainbow Scarf.  I used Lang Tosca yarn in two different variations of orange.  Here it is lying on my table.
And here it is modeled by my husband.  He wrapped it around his head and then begged me to take a picture for craftser.  What a weird guy!

This scarf took way longer than what the pattern said but it was good knitting for during meetings and at work.

I love this book, so I really love seeing everyone's take on the patterns!  I wanted to make the baby booties, but being the ever-practical gal I am, I just couldn't bring myself to use angora for something a baby will wear!!  I made them in acrylic--white baby yarn and some green "peach fuzz" to give them a fuzzy look.  Now they can be spit-up on by baby and washed easily by a busy mom!

love the orange scarf and the little bootees.  I think the fuzz factor is key for the "angora" bootees because the bootees are a bit duckfeet like (which is great if that is what you are going for), but the fuzz just makes it.  Too cute!

Everything looks great! Had to get the book after seeing all the beautiful projects - can't wait to get started! The book has incredible photographs and so many neat patterns - hopefully will be able to post my own "Last Minute Gifts" soon.

PrincessJazz, I LOVE your rainbow scarf! I'm a big fan of orange. I made a rainbow scarf too, in various shades of blue, purple and pink and I get compliments on it all the time. Now I'm very tempted to make an orange one!

I finished my Zippered Raglan! Modeled by my bf, the recipient. I don't know what I did wrong with the collar, I'm going to add a hook and eye to make sure it stands up the way I want it to. Otherwise I'm quite happy with it.

hey, how come I've never been drawn to this sweater in the book, but LOVE it every time I see it made by smbdy else ?

It looks great, and I don't see anything wrong with the collar ! You're lucky your bf agrees to wear wool tho..  ;-)

Yeah we both eat vegan, but he doesn't mind wearing wool (he inherited a lot of vintage suits from his grandfather and they're all wool). I don't mind wearing silk but other than that I'm much more of a stickler than he is. Still knitting with that Manos was such a dream and it made for such a smoother finished product, it is definitely tempting! I'm just hoping for future projects (I'm obsessed with fair isle at the moment) that I can find something with cotton or silk in it for blocking properties but also acrylic to help the garment keep its shape, that comes in lots of colors. Sigh.

Haha that was way too much info.
