Ha! I almost said "hi, Jenny" to your friend, then realized I wasn't sure it was you. I'm glad it's not just me who was confused!  Then again, if her name is Jen she would have said hi back, wouldn't she?  *head spins*

Having said that, your friend was really friendly and said hello when I was browsing.  She didn't seem to recognize me (I think you would have), which was the tipoff.  But jeebus does she look like you! Especially when the sun's creating a glare, she's wearing Jackie-O sunglasses, and the shopper is blinded by back pain (but that's another story).

Sorry I missed you that day.  I hope it was a lucrative weekend for you.  Chicago *hearts* Jenny Hart Smiley

I found one copy of the book at my local Border's today and was about to buy it when I noticed the contents were upside down!  Jenny: did you know there was a problem with the printing?

My local fabric/craft store carries the brand but didn't have the exact colors it calls for.  I ended up ordering it online. Sorry, I can't remember which store I got it from.  Do a google search on the yarn name and I'm sure you'll find it.

P.S. I think it might have been http://www.herrschners.com

Any advice for how to alter the pattern to make the shrug longer, so that it ties at the waist?  Making the sleeves a little longer seems easy, but I'm not sure how to lengthen the body.

The Prepster jacket also has special shaping for D-cups.

Wait, so what IS the correct hook size? (Just so I know... I have a two-month old baby cousin for whom I would like to make this blanket, sometime in time for his first birthday.

Here's the errata sheet: http://www.bust.com/knithappens/snbhh-errata.pdf

I believe the correct hook size is 9mm.

I used that one too
It was this I didn't and still dont get but I'm sure that what you said makes more sense!
Row 2: *2 sc in one stitch, then 7 sc* all the way around (14)
what I'm getting from it is that I have to sc 2 in one stitch and then do 7 sc.. there are 7 stitches to start with and it didn't add up that row 3 would have 14 that way..
so I guess it should say:
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc (14)

You're correct... you start with 7 stitches in the first row. 2nd row: 2 sc in each of those 7 sts to make 14.

The Japanese chart literally says:  Row 1: 7 sts.  Row 2: 14 sts.  So I think the only way you can get from 7 to 14 is to sc 2 in each st.  Anyway, that worked for me.

I looked it up:  Row 3-10: continue the 14 stitches.
Row 11: decrease to 4 sts (in the manner I described earlier)

Here's the chart in Japanese: http://www5a.biglobe.ne.jp/~mite/gurumineko/4/amizu1.html

The mouth is just an unstuffed egg-shaped piece.  I'm reciting this from memory so it's probably not exact, but...

The first row is 7 sts.

2 sc's in each one to make 14 sts.

Do that for the required number of rows (is it rows 2-11?)

The last row you decrease down to 4 sts (which seems weird to me, since it should be symmetrical).  Anyway, the decreases are written as:  sc 3 together, sc 4 together, sc 4 together, sc 3 together: 4 sts remaining.

Then pull yarn through those 4 stitches and tighten and tie off.

I put it down for a while, so I don't know the total hours.  Definitely longer than a weekend, but if you work on it weekends and evenings you could probably get it done in a week.

I used the same yarn the pattern called for, highly recommended.  I put a scalloped edge on instead of picot (seemed more fitting).  The hook size was incorrect in the pattern so the squares are a little looser than they should be, but I think it's okay.  I'm not 100% happy with the seams -- it's really hard to see the stitches in that ragg yarn!  Anyway... here she is, just in time to show off at Debbie's book signing this afternoon!
