I've loved this pattern for a while despite the fact that I'm on a severe knitting diet. You can buy the pattern and yarn for only $22 from Lion Brand, which is almost cheaper than buy 7 skeins of Wool Ease alone. Not sold on the Wool Ease yet though. Looking for a good yarn to buy regardless of the diet.  Thanks soo much for the translated Portuguese pattern. Can't wait until I can start knitting.

Maybe it's just me but I love the look of the counterpane pullover, however I don't think that dark red was the right color for it,. I think it would look lovely in a cream or white with a brighter colored cami underneath.

I've finished one pair using Tofutsies yarn, and they're simply wonderful. I was getting really scared about having to do 3.5 repeats for my HUGE feet but when you wear them it all evens out. The varigated yarn does sort of lose the pattern a bit, however, I like it especially as the scrumptiousness of the yarn is sooo worth it.

Is anybody else puzzled about why you have to break the yarn before starting the heal? I just started the heal w/out breaking the yarn and it looks fine and doesn't seem to affect the fit of the sock or how it looks.

Will post pics soon, have to download and deal with vacation pics first.

Glad you figured it out, I was on vacation so that's why I didn't respond...now resting up from it.

PM means place marker, something to indicate that you've done those number of stitches.

My mom wants me to knit her a pair of socks  and I thought Breeze would be a good start, plus I love them, too.

I haven't decided what yarn I'll use but I'm thinking of using Tofutsies
http://www.soysilk.com/tofutsies.html as my LYS has it in stock for $15.95.

Anybody else in? I didn't see another KAL, so I'm sorry if I'm reposting.

I love this pattern. I made one is a pinkish color cotton fleece. I LURVE it so far and can't wait until it gets warm enough to wear on its own.

Does anybody think Cottonease would work for this at all? It's a slightly larger gauge but I figure going down a couple needle sizes or knitting up a smaller size might solve the gauge issues.

I'm enamored with some Cottonease colors when I saw the yarn at my local Michaels. Plus 200 some odd yards for $4.99, I like.

I love the color. Some of you people knit way too bleepin' fast!
One question about sizing...
I'm guessing I should knit the 37" bust for my sister-in-law (I had my brother check one of her bras and she's a 36B) but I was surprised that was her back measurement. Probably a bit safer to go looser than too tight. I can't try it on for her as I'm a 34A, but she lives 4 hrs away.
Should I call her and get accurate measurements? With the negative ease, I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions?
Zoesmamma, just from personal experience, I'm a 34C/36B depending on the bra and I knit the size small and it fit fine on me (you can see my pics a couple pages back). I didn't use Tilli Thomas so my gauge might have been a bit off.  The sweater is supposed to have negative ease, and I believe somebody mentioned at the beginning of  the thread that you should add 3 inches to the sizes listed on the pattern for actual sizing. I guess it depends on whether you want to be a bit generous or not, if you're at all uncertain, maybe knit a size up? Or just have your brother get more exact measurements from your SIL without making her too suspicious.

Would it at all be easier to have all the yardage requirements posted in maybe the first post of this thread? I'm not sure if there would be any legalities related to that, but it would make it easier for anybody who is considering knitting the pattern to know how much yarn they would need before hand.

Just a suggestion.
