I love your version of Starsky AWynkoop. I didn't realize that Sierra was a bulky weight yarn either.  I was thinking about starting Starsky this weekend with yarn from my stash.

I have worn my Starsky constantly this past winter.  Now that spring is here, I almost hate to put it away.  If you haven't finished, you have plenty of time before next winter.  It is so worth it!  I'm about to start the Dollar and a Half cardigan from Interweave (spring 07).  It may be at least as challenging.

Jazzmatazz- I have worn mine constantly too!  It is so pilly (beware of Knitpicks Merino Style) but it is definely my favorite thing I have ever knit it is so cozy and soft!
I am curious how other's Starsky's have held up... I want to make another for myself and my sister wants one as well, but I really want to make it in a yarn that will hold up a little better with fewer pills. (I know pills are a downfall of the butter soft yarn)

dancing with myself here...  Cheesy

I have two sleeves and a belt done! I've done the math to knit the back and sides as one piece, dividing for the armholes, and I'm about 6 1/2 inches into the bottom ribbing (hey, 144 stitches in 3x3, it's a small scarf!). The pattern calls for only 3" of ribbing, but I really like the look of the wider ribbing, and knit until I was tired of it.

Now I'm trying to decide what to do for the body. I don't want to do the banana leaf cable, and I *really* want some shaping in there. Not sure if I should stick with ribbing and just change up the count (2x2? 5x1?) or Frankenstein something like the "weekend pullover" into it to get appropriate shaping.

A pickle. A quandry.

Good thing I have another Red Scarf Project scarf to keep my fingers busy while I decide.

Okay, I finished my Starsky a long time ago, but I never posted a completed pic!

Here she is, keeping me warm while I pick apples.  Mmmm.... apples.
