I bought mine at my local knitting shop.  But I bet you could get them on Amazon.

Is the pattern from a book, or can you buy it separately online somewhere?

It is in one of those slim book/magazine things that Rowan publishes.  Called Vintage Style.  I can't decide about some of the other projects.  Are they lovely, or would they look horribly frumpy on anyone other than the glamazons that Rowan hired to model these things?

I'm thinking about it. I can't afford the Kidsilk Haze right now, but I've been looking for a substitute.  If I find one, I'm in.  Smiley
I was going to use Madil Kid Seta (much cheaper) but my LYS stopped carrying it. Gasp!
I bought Vintage Style, but I haven't decided if I want to keep it.  The patterns are nice, but the gauges are rather small.

I'm apparently incapable of knitting a garment with the suggested fiber.  I plan to use some Kyrgyzstani mohair that I bought from Afghans for Afghans.

This stuff is wound into the tightest ball you've ever seen -- it looks like a fuzzy hand grenade.  I actually have no idea how much yardage I've got.  I need to put my hands on a niddy noddy and figure this out.  I'm thinking of knitting this in two colors, because I've got two shades of gold.  One was dyed with pomegranates, and one with onion skins.  They're beautiful, and the swatches I worked up are delicious.  Sure, they're a teeny bit itchy, but this isn't exactly a garment you've wear next to bare skin....

Might get more bites for a knitalong if you posted this in the knitalong section... Wink

This is cool - because Aimee is next on my list. I have the Vintage Style book and I have the Kidsilk Haze in my stash - so hopefully quite soon I'm planning on casting on. 

I was thinking about knitting this one in the round up to the armholes - since I don't like seaming in general and particularly with mohair. But because this sweater  is sort of stripey, would that be a bad move?  Any thoughts on that?

Anyway, I'm going to be making mine in the color "trance" which is a lovely deep turquoise.  Looking forward to knitting along...
