Same here!  I want to order some yarn (I have about $120 worth of stuff hanging out in my shopping basket on Knitpicks for various projects), but I have a ton of aran wool I might knit one up with first seeing that I'm not working (was teaching high school but burned out after this last school year), looking for a new job, and in the meantime living off of the stash of $$ I've saved up.

Has anyone tried this sweater with a yarn that has some amount of nylon/spandex content, so it stretches when pulled?

I wonder how that would turn out.

I knitted this baby in heriloom cashmino which has wool, cashmere and microfibre content. The microfibre made it very stretchy and easy to work with. I looks great so far but I've been stuck seaming it so I'm not sure what it will be like when it's all put together.

Another question!  Roll Eyes

Is anyone making/has anyone made the 39" bust size?  I'm wondering how much yardage of yarn I'm likely to need as I assume the nine skiens/990 yards Calista used were for the size small?

TIA to anyone who can help, Jane Smiley

I plan to start this as soon as I get my first paycheck in late August/early September as I'm starting to run low on funds. Right now there are 2 things on my must knit list, this and a glampyre sweater.  I'm planning to do the medium and get 10 skeins of the KP as I may pull the neckline up a bit as I work in an elementary school.

Jane, sorry for the late reply. I moved from Iowa to New Jersey and don't have a Internet service yet. (At first, I didn't even have an apartment..kekeke.. .I stayed at my friend's place for about a week and just got my place!) I made small size, so I wasn't sure about the yardage of XL. I can try to calculate the yardage by counting the numbers of the sts! But it will take a while..(you can guess why.. Grin) I'll post the result of my calculation tomorrow!

Jane, I finally got the result of calculation!!  Cheesy
11 skeins of Andean Treasure, which is about 1056 yards would be enough. (more exactly..the calculation result was 10.56 skeins.)
I counted the difference between the numbers of stitches of S size and that of XL size, and compared the yardages. So it would be almost accurate.
(It took me a while to do that Tongue)

Just bought the pattern last night. I found it from a posting on a livejournal community and couldn't resist.

I just have to say that I love that someone else made this sweater out of woolease sport weight. My stash is brimming with the stuff (I got a lot of it for very very cheap) and I was about to buy the knitpicks yarn until I saw the earlier posting. Big woot for stash busting and making something awesome!! Grin

Calista, you are an absolute LEGEND Kiss I was thinking about this sweater just this morning and hoping someone would have replied to my question whilst I was away on holiday!  I'm buying the pattern right now.  Thanks so much for all your awesome help, hope you're all settled in your new place now Smiley
