Piyolet-It is Jane Austen!  I haven't seen all of the BBC version of Emma yet.  My avatar is the portrait her sister Cassandra drew of her (and is the only image of Jane.)  I am a huge fan so I went to see it in a museum once and it is tiny!  Like ~4X6.

Which museum? Is it in London?  I went to Bath in 2003 and it was so ... charming!  Have you seen the Austen cards? They're hilarious, and she's barefoot!  I have the Virginia Woolf cards....

Ok, to stay relevant to this thread, I have made cap sleeves on my bulky Lucky because I doubted whether I had enough yarn to do long sleeves or even 3/4 sleeves.  I'm up to the neck band --- 65"!  Geez.  This will be boring.  Well, I managed to make all the pieces ALMOST match up, and I hope after blocking it will work out.  I've never blocked pieces before, and I don't have a blocking board, and this is silk/cashmere, and I don't have a spritz bottle... well, we shall see what we shall see!

Actually, I found 2 sellers on ebay that sell the yarn quite cheap about $40-$46 for 10 skeins (shipping included). Although they only sell the olive and pink color.
How many skeins do the pattern call for?

8 (8, 10, 10, 11) skeins.

And on the 65 inches of neck band, I know man, I can hardly wait.  Undecided When I block, I just put a towel on the floor (on a DDR pad actually), get the pieces wet in the sink, and pin them to the towel to dry.

something rather thin and nonfuzzy seems to be what's required.

I'm using Baby Cashmere from Elann. Oh my goodness. It's such a soft, gorgeous yarn I want to kiss it but I don't want my husband to give me any more weird looks. har har. Roll Eyes

Here's the swatch I just knit up. I tried using my addi turbo #3 (3.25mm) first (bottom) and then #2 (3mm) (top) because the #3 felt really loose and floppy. Amazing what a .25mm difference made.



The scanner doesn't do the color "Peacock" justice. Next time I'll take a pic with my digi.
