Exciting, my new one is going to be purple, blue, pinky!  I can't wait to see yours jesthestar! 
Digital Angel, I never knit swatches because I'm to impatient but this has resulted in knitting heart break in the past.  So, more power to ya!  This a great pattern and I'm sure you'll have fun!  Wink

I did mine! It's blue and green colourway chenille yarn that I love... I made fingerless gloves earlier this week that match. It looks and feels SO nice but SOOOO Warm. Good thing England is a cold country  Grin And I'm another short hair here;) My hair's just reaching jaw length in a layered bob. I'll get a picture for the thread soon.

ETA: Pictures and details.

I cast on 60 stitches and did row five 7 times over. I did row seven 9 times over. Got that? Good. This is a VERY fluffy yarn so it just kinda.. grows as you knit. turned out perfect size. Good guestimation on my part. I didn't swatch  Tongue
 Sorry for blurry cell phone camera pics, my hair behaving oddly and my lack of make up.  Tongue

I love the chenille! It looks really soft and warm.  Smiley  What size needles did you use with the chenille?

It's fantasticly soft and warm! Perfect for cold cold england. Err.. I was using 6mm needles, I don't know what that is in US sizing.  Tongue

Luckily most needles in the US are marked with US sizes and metric, so you used a size 10 US.  I think I might have to go and get some chenille yarn because it is awful rainy and cold right now here in Virginia! Wink

Here's mine, it's HUGE!  Though, thankfully, I'm also in the UK and I finished it just in time for the weather to turn decidedly autumnal! (fall-all? what IS the US equivalent?!)

Anyway, I did it exactly to the instructions, I got the right gauge with the same needles, but as you can so, it is indeed much larger than intended.  I've had a few compliments on it though, and the woman in my local cafe has now cast hers on too Cheesy

Scary pics, be warned, hair-in-need-of-a-wash and me in my PJs follows!

I had a problem with mine being huge too!

Very pretty though!
