Bigang100 -- I think the Cascade 220 Tweed is available, you just may have to order it online. I did a bit of searching and found one place that had it on sale for about $7.50/skein...otherwise it was a couple more bucks per at regular price. Anyway, Donegal Tweed seems like a good alternative.

I can't decide whether to go for tweedy or plain. I'm going to my local yarn heaven today, so I'll report back if I make a choice.

That is truly awesome. I'm gonna pass this on to my crayola paraphenelia collecting, knitting friend. She'll be tickled pink.

I've seen that construction of a rectangle-based poncho before, so you're not doing it "wrong" at all, but rather came up with an innovative twist on the usual all by yourself. Hooray for you!

Thanks for the props, everyone.

Xiuxiu -- Hard to say for sure how long it took, as I did it over several weeks with lots of time off. I imagine it could be done by a dedicated person in a week or a week and a half of evening knitting sessions, but it depends so much on the individual! The one tip for making it go faster (and this goes for sweaters in general) is to do the sleeves before you get all the body pieces done. I always lose steam when it comes to the sleeves, so I have to sandwich them in between body pieces in order to convince myself to finish the whole thing.

Knit Dork24 -- I'm glad you agree. I wasn't sure about it, but I figured the li'l one would be ready for a nice bright sweater by next winter. Her parents live in SF, so I thought the color would be a good antidote to the fog.

Sewer Rat -- I'm glad the pic made you happy. I wish I knew someone with a 1 y/o I could borrow...I was considering trying to get my cat in there, but thought better of it. He'd never forgive me. I'll have to come back and update the post once the this one gets big enough to wear it!

Subloke et al -- I've been thinking the same thing! Maybe I'll work on designing an adult sized version. Or maybe someone out there with more designing prowess wants to go for it...? I remember seeing a post somewhere about someone who was working on their own modified adult version, but I don't think they had finished photos or a pattern. I wonder if you just used chunkier yarn if it would get big enough? Then again, that's probably not an appropriately sophisticated idea for adapting it to fit an adult woman's body...

Thanks again for looking.

You're so prolific! That's awesome. I'm with you on the socks...I just made my first pair and I can't believe I waited this long. It's a whole new world...I'm going back to look at all the sock patterns I turned briskly past in my books and magazines and daydreaming about koigu.

I particularly like your felted bags, too. Very nice!

The colors came out so great! And I like your floating hat photograph. Your grandma is one lucky lady.
