Hey guys I'm a newbie here, I reckon where it says they're sold out for the really expensive ones, they aren't really sold out, they're just saying that to make it look like they have customers!!
And if they really are sold out we're in the wrong jobs!!

I was just showing these to my boyfriend, and I noticed that they took the Karabella bit off of the press page.  I guess they realized they were giving away all of their trade secrets...

HAH!! Under "press" it also gives the EXACT yarn they use!

*goes off to price Karabella Supercashmere*

In their "press" section, did anyone else find it funny that they had five things listed and three of them were just bookmarking sites like wists and stylehive, and the others were blog entries and comments which were actually discussing how overpriced and silly the products were.  I also found their "About us" section nauseating ("a joyous courtship"?  "the knitting atelier"?  Holy abundant pretentiousness batman).

I wasn't planning on knitting for Christmas, but I might churn out a bunch of these babies with a little card attached just for the laugh factor. 

I mean really!

hrm, i wonder how a crochet one in a super bulky yarn would look/feel? i know it wouldn't be very similar to these, but i bet it would be really cosy...i'm gonna try making a test one out of my softee/chunkee yarn. now if i could just figure out why i'm decreasing on every row...

This reminded me of the bainbridge scarf as well, but the construction is completely different. I made a bainbridge last winter and it is made in the round. The pidge is made flat and closed with buttons.
I finished my version last week, but still haven't found the right buttons. I look forward to seeing what people do come up with though.
