I am going to make this for my sister for Chrsitmas. Has anyone made it? Anyone want to make it? I'm heading to my LYS this afternoon to look for some delicious yarn...

Hey there, I definitely want to make it, but just have to steel myself for spending about 60 on yarn (about $100).  It calls for so much!  If I can find something that doesn't bankrupt me, I will definitely join you!

It's on my to-do list, in a different yarn. Sometime AFTER the holidays, though.

I JUST bought the wool for this. I got Jaeger Luxury Tweed from Cucumber patch for only 1.50 a ball. http://www.cucumberpatch.co.uk/luxury_tweed.htm

65% lambswool and 35% alpaca. I got 9 balls which should be more than enough to make a small size for 13.50.

I making a Rosedale United at the moment but I think I should be finished by the weekend so I'm hoping to cast on then.

oh yay! i am not alone!

I have actually had a really frustrating time with this - I just haven't been paying enough attention, and have had to frog back a lot.

but i am using misti alpaca in a lovely green colour. and i am determined to not make any more mistakes!

I want to make this, but I was holding out til Elann gets another shipment of the teal in. I like wrap sweaters a lot, but the teal is really what caught my eye. I heard they aren't getting another shipment til the holidays, though. Sad Maybe I should just find a sub in the same color.

I'm back!! Probably for too late though Sad

I finished my Rosedale U and it was too small so I had to put back all the yoke and body and knit the whole thing again. Then I made some Xmas scarves for a break. Finally I picked up my Jaeger Luxury Tweed and realised it was a terrible choice. Beautiful, but pretty fluffy and you'd never have seen the twisted rib.

Finally, I won 500g of Rowan Lightweight dk on ebay, gauge swatched and cast on for the back last night. I've done 3 repeats of the twisted rib and it progressing quicker than I had feared. I'm making the small rather than the medium as I think my gauge might be a little loose and also because I'd like a more close-fitting look than in the knitty pictures. I hope this isn't another too-small disaster waiting to happen...

Is anyone else making this or is it all too late?

I'm still making mine! I had a bit of a set back with the front - had to rip it out three times (I got seriously confused by the instructions, but have conquered - let me know when you're there if you need any help). Am now on the first sleeve. This has taken me forever (mostly because of the damn frogging)...

I've just finished the ribbing on the back and am bracing myself for hours and hours of stockinette stitch. I'm slightly nervous as it looks very small at this stage. I suppose the ribbing will stretch and there's a fair amount of increasing... I think after making my last project too small I'm just worrying...

it will stretch out a lot. and i would imagine that if the back seems a bit small, you could always do the front pieces one size up.
