I, too, have leftover yarn from Grace which I plan to use for the Airy Scarf (My Grace is done, but dang - it's not as easy as it looks!)

Atouria, I love your Hourglass Sweater! I just bought some Cash Iroha from ebay and plan to start mine soon. It's dark turquoise and totally gorgeous but I have no idea how it will look on me. I kind of wish I could try on these sweaters before I make them Smiley

I'm a new knitter and new to Craftster. I working on knitting seven of the Airy Scarves as bridesmaid's presents for a friend. Once I figured out how to do the yarnover, the pattern was a breeze! I've really enjoyed making those scarves (only 3 more to go by mid- May) and if you don't already have the book get it!

Thanks for all the compliments, guys!  It's a little big, but that's ok.  It'll be super snuggly in the winter. 

Ultraviolet, I'm with ya on the turquoise.  I keep seeing pretty turquoise yarn, but I'm just not sure how it will look on me.

Grace is from knitty.com. It is listed as Mellow, but beware - there is a TON of finishing! And I think I have somehow been deeply traumatized by working with the mohair yarn (I used GGH Soft Kid). I keep seeing patterns for beautiful sweaters, but as soon as I see that they use this yarn, I immediately discard the idea. Which is sad, because many of them are from Rebecca and I haven't tried any of their patterns yet.

My hourglass is going well so far - I'm becoming more and more convinced that the turquoise will look great on me Smiley

i wanted to try out the Cash Iroha before committing to a big project like the Hour Glass sweater with it, so i made the women's wrist warmers.  i'm ultra happy with them because i knit them flat and then seamed them up and the seam ended up nearly disapearing Cheesy (ps.  i freakin' love this yarn...DAMN IT!)

Seam? What seam? I don't see a seam!  Smiley

It is lovely yarn, but get it while you can. I hear it's being discontinued. I got a good price on it from ebay.

Ages ago, I said I'd post my chunky drawstring gift bag... but alas, I don't have a digital camera and feel silly using up film for the sole purpose of gloating on Craftster.

That said, I'm posting crappy webcam pictures of my chunky drawstring gift bag for the sole purpose of gloating on Craftster.

Last night I made the angora booties!  I hate working with DPNs, so I usually avoid projects that require them, but these are so worth it.

I used white Belangor brand angora.  I have to say that they are absolutely the most adorable things I've ever seen in my life and so quick, too!  I implore you, if you know anyone that's having a baby, definitely definitely make a pair of these.  Even if you don't know anyone that's having a baby right now...make them anyway just to hold in your hand and admire. 

Now I have to find a itty bitty hat pattern, since I the angora I originally ordered for the project came, but since it's handspun and thicker wouldn't work for the booties, but will make a lovely little matching hat.   Suggestions, anyone?

Tell me, are you a badfish too?

After lurking on this thread for a couple of days and reading all the posts about everyone's projects, I decided to put aside the frustrating project I was working on and bought yarn to make the leg warmers (I'll need them to keep me warm at night in the summer in chilly San Francisco). I did my gauge swatch last night on straights, using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in a Wedgewood blue and a Jaeger mohair in light blue. They're different weights than the yarns in the pattern, but the gauge worked out fine.

Now I just have to wait for my 12" circulars I just ordered online to arrive. Has anyone else made the leg warmers? I'm wondering if I could've used 16" circulars (and avoided the wait).

By the way, everyone's projects look really great. I love the stuffed animals, especially.
