Everyone seems to like that one too, including me...unfortunately it's not in the book!  Ah well...but there's plenty of other good things in it.  Smiley

Where is that one?  Interweave?

Oh... figured it out.  Looks like she's just wearing it.  Holding out on us I see. 

The book still looks fantastic.

I really like the look of a lot of the projects (hooray! All too rare in knitting books), but it isn't published here till the end of the month so I guess I'll just have to be patient (not my strongest point...). One question though - I've never knit any of Stephanie's patterns before; what are they like in terms of difficulty level?

Who would have thought - I have a blog!

I'm finishing up the sleeves on the textured tunic. I had to rip 3 times because of gauge issues.  I'm using KP Decadence and it really is decadent.

I just started the Chunky Cardi that she's got in yellow.  I'm going to use pink KP Sierra for spring.  I just got past the arm increases. 

I am desperately in love with the lacy wrap cardi and the Jacky-O cabled cardi (can't think of the name.)  Is it really going to need 10+ skeins of yarn fora smaller size?  I know cables eat up yarn, but that seems like a huge amount.

Her patterns are usually pretty simple, although there are the occasionally unclear line or two. I'll warn you that there are a lot of errata in this book though (why didn't you hire another copy editor, Stefanie?) so although the patterns are generally suitable for an advanced beginner, you might need to be pretty experienced to spot the mistakes. Check her blog for the errata page before you start and you'll be okay.

I'm in for the knit along. I am making the Boatneck Bluebell sweater, but I can't start it until next week. For now all I have is a pile of cascade 220 ready to go. The color I picked is very Crayola, it should be fun. I haven't seen any errata for that pattern yet, if anybody runs in to some, let me know.
newbie here, so link to my yarn:

I am very excited to see a knit along for this book!!  I love everything in it.  I am currently working on the puffed sleeved cardigan but I think I should've made it for a size smaller.  Any suggestions besides frogging and starting over?? Thanks!

I just got my copy yesterday.  Wow, lots of lovely designs in there (though count me in with those that are disappointed that the sweater she's wearing for her bio pic isn't included!).

I also started the two-tone shrug yesterday (I just finished Starsky, and I wanted something small to work on).  Though, I'm boring and making it in one color (if I love it, I may make another in other colors).  Using some monochromatic Karaoke I had in my stash (which I had bought to make a shrug with, but hadn't ever settled on that perfect pattern).  I'm almost finished with the raglan increases.

I haven't yet decided what else I'd like to make from the book -- I know I'll be making at least one of those cardigans.
