I finished the baby sweater.  I made a pullover style using Filatura Lanarota Royal Linen from Smiley's Yarns.

That looks much nicer than the one in the book.

That is a very cute sweater.  I liked the one in the book but was doubtful it would look as good in real life, but yours does!  Very nice.

This is adorable!  How did you like knitting with the linen?  I'd like to make this one after I finish up my Almost Famous Luggy Hat.  Despite being spot on for gauge, the "child-size" of the Hat is coming out very large.  Apparently a common problem with the pattern.   Roll Eyes

The Royal Linen wasn't too bad to knit with.  It was rather splitty and required attention, but it did turn out so nicely knit up that it was hard for me to dislike it! Thanks for the compliments!

I finished my third FO from this book tonight, the super mittens, using under one skein of Lamb's Pride Bulky. 



Simple knit, but very warm, and a good use of LPB as I don't find it too harsh and scratchy against my hands.  I think they probably took under three hours total to make too.

Very nice mittens!  I like the bright blue.  They look super warm.

Hurrah! I got this for my birthday on the 2nd!
The projects look gorgeous, but a little daunting... I love the Lopi scarf, but looking at the instructions it isn't that straightforward (I'm still finding my feet knit-wise!).
ANy recommendations on which projects are easiest from this book?

Thanks

My hubby got me this book for a present two Solstices ago. This is my first pair of socks and I love them.



I think the stitches seem a little large which makes me suspect this yarn wasn't quite right. It's not sock yarn and that could be why. The yarn is a wool/silk blend so the socks are super soft.

Those are the armchair socks right?  I like the colour a lot.  That is a very nice first pair of socks!

Shona, I would just go for whatever patten you are most excited about. I was a little intimidated by this book because all of the pictures of the projects looked so professional and pretty, and some of the instructions were very long. However, I found that the instructions were extremely well written and clear. I have made more projects from this book than any other book I own and have found them the least challenging.
