I bought the pattern and plan to make a pair for my mom for Christmas and eventually a pair for myself.
I think I'm going to use Knitpicks wool of the andes in amethyst heather, chambray, and hyacinth.

oh by the way.. if i ever get around to buy the pattern, is it possible to do the shibori felting with a front load machine? i read alot of felting tutorials and all of them are suggesting the top loads they seem to use in u.s. i assume that gives you more agitation... i woudl hate it if i buy the pattern and got no use for it.

tinybits, I have a front-loader, too.  I just made a couple of felted bowls last week that worked out alright.  I did end up putting them through twice, though.  And I put them through with a medium-sized load of laundry for agitation.  I put them though with a couple little squirts of dish soap.  I think a top-loader would probably work faster.  I believe there's a thread around here somewhere about just this issue...

aha!   here:

I'm on my way now to go buy some Cascade 220 so I can get started on my pair.  I know.  Boring choice.  But I know Cascade 220 won't be itchy so that's my plan and I'm sticking to it.  I'll post pics of the colors I choose over at www.curiouslycleverclogs.blogspot.com later.  Might be a lot later since from now until almost bedtime the kiddos have stuff for which I gotta play taxi mom.
Knit on!

I'm knitting mine with a double strand of Cascade 220 on size 13 needles.  Be sure you pick up a tiny crochet hook that will fit through the hole in your beads since the beads are added as you knit. 
I love all the extra instructions for the methods used in the pattern that are included in this pattern.  It will be a great resource.

I'm using a 16" Clover bamboo circular needle but straights would work.  I think DPN's might be a tiny bit short.  You WILL need the DPN's for the attached I-cord that happens at the very end of the pattern.
Hope that helps.
