colorQ--I think I'm going to try it!!!  I can get the yarn this weekend.  How much of the wool ease did you use for it?  I'm so glad you suggested Lion brand-- the only LYS I have doesn't have any of the yarns listed in the SnB book and anyway, yours looks just as good.  I may take you up on the offer of help though!!!

Tami--let me know how yours is going too!!

I can't tell you how many times I've made that hot head hat already!!! (ok, three times, but that's not the point). I love it!!! Don't worry about the instructions saying "two hours" though, because each hat took me at least a whole day to complete. I'm working on the "ribbed for her pleasure" scarf in grey and blue stripes for my boyfriend right now, and it's soooo nice so far! These are the times I wish I had a digital camera!

Thanks, Firehead4!

AnnaMarie--I bought 6 skeins of wool ease thick n quick, and I ended up using 5, and I was knitting for the largest size. For the lion brand fun fur I used 4 skeins.  Smiley

I just want you guys to know that I read this  thread obsessively -- at least every day, sometimes more than once a day!-- and I  can't tell you how exciting it is to see some of the projects from my book actually getting made! really, it's totally thrilling. Everything that's getting posted here looks so good, and I love how some of you are changing things up as well.
I'm hoping that the pattern instructions are clear enough -- we had a pattern editor working on the book and so far it seems  that you have been able to make the projects turn out well. Still, if any of you find any mistakes in the patterns, please be sure to email me. And hey, if you feel like it, post a review on Amazon.com.

AS a brand new knitter who didn't know which end of the knitting needles to hold when I first started, I can't recommend this book enough to beginners.  I have completed Cape Mod, and the felted tote --both were easy to make (The cape was the first thing I knitted after making a very basic scarf).  I am now 2/3 done w/  the "Skully"sweater --a present for my husband that he insisted I make--- I never would have had the mojo to start a sweater if I hadn't had so much success with the previous projects.  Everyone's completed projects look so good!  I hope my sweater looks half as cool as the completed one Red made!

I'm currently knitting a scarf, as a first project. It's coming on pretty well, so I might have a look at that book when this scarf is finally done! It is purple chunky wool and has a ribbed bottom, but it isn't ribbed any more 'cos I've forgotten how to do purl  Embarrassed I'll show off my scarf when it's done, in approximately 2050

All these projects look so great! I am happy to know that the Cape Mod Poncho turned out well in Lion Brand yarn since I cannot afford that much Rowan yarn right now. Great job!

I made my sister the windy city scarf for christmas. I really love this scarf, but when I make one for myself I will knit it longer on each side. It ends up a bit too short for my taste, but it is still a great scarf. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease for this project.

I just got this book for Christmas! Yay! I've always wanted to learn how to knit and I seriously.can.not.wait. to get started. I'm going to my LYS today to get some much-needed supplies to start knitting and (hopefully) complete my first scarf. Aww! If only I could show my grandmother. She'd be so proud. Smiley
