I finished my own Panta last night. I don't think I'm necessarily cool enough for Panta, but I still like it. I originally intended it to be a gift, but now I'm not sure....

Wool of the Andes, size 5 needles, and the only change I made was to slip the first and last stitches of every other row.

Made for my mom, in Andean Silk from KnitPicks. It blocked beautifully. Here's a happy mom wearing it:

I liked making it, but it didn't take me only a week...took me about 3, as I got bored at some point, as it didn't really feel like TV knitting, as I kept messing up one or two stitches, and then would realize at the end or the middle that the count was off. However, I would still like to make more of them, in different colors.

I finished Tempting today!!

I used the recommended needles, and got on gauge with GGH Samoa. I started on April 23rd, and finished today. I liked the three needle bind off-someone said it'd be a welcome break to the ribbing, and they were right. 

I used the striping instructions given <a href="http://www.livejournal.com/community/knitting/3988337.html" target="_blank">here</a>, only repeated it once, though,  and for decreasing instead of eyelets, I knit only two, two and a half inches of yoke, then purled 2 every other purl set, did a straight row of knitting the knits, then purling the purls, then purled 2 the remaining 2 purl sets,  then knit 4, purl 1 for a row or two, then Knit 2 together every 8 stitches (or as close as I could get while still purling the remaining purls. Then I bound off.

I would have increased the space between the k2 togethers, like every 14 stitches or so, if I had know it would have made Tempting cropped and cap sleeved, but still, I really really like how it came out.

I don't get to post much here, but wanted to show off my own Airy scarf...and someone here said it would make a good head scarf, which it does.

and my favorite, as a head scarf:

I made it in KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud in sunshine.
