I just finished the mittens.  Now I wish it were colder!  I didn't like how the directions were written.  Just too many words.

tinygoatstacker-I am going to start the Perfect Pie Shawl tomorrow.    I was in the same situation you were.  I kept going back to the mohair, but I'm not real sure how much use I'll get out of a shawl.  So, I think I am going to use the Homespun.  I've used the Jiffy before on a toddler's sweater.  Nice, but a bit heavy.  I've used the Homespun once before and was surprised with how light it was.  Not mohair, but hey.  I figure if it doesn't work out, I can make the yoga pants from Interweave.

Jiffy is much easier than the Homespun.  I was wrong.  Very wrong!  

I found some Imagine by Lion Brand and will try this before I go to the Jiffy.  It is 20% Mohair and it feels lighter than the Jiffy.  Almost the same gauge as the Berroco & cost close to Jiffy.  

Fuschia will be very pretty.

Why can't puffins eat pancakes instead?

Thanks swellgirl! I think I'm going to try Lion Brand Imagine for... something. It sounds lovely! Smiley  
I love your mittens! The color is awesome.

Has anyone else done the fluffy camisole with cowl?  I finished it recently and was not all that psyched by how it turned out.  The removable cowl just doesn't seem to drape all that well on me - I tried seaming part of it to the back of the neck and that just made it worse.  Plus I don't really like how you can see the V-neck of the top underneath the cowl.  The pattern itself is quite easy and the lace pattern is lovely, just am not all that thrilled with the shape/drape of the top...  would love some info from others who have made this top.

I've made the Super Mittens (I used Lamb's Pride Bulky, ladies size is only 1 skein), the flower washcloth, and the two-toned hat (I can't remember the name of it.)  The two toned hat was rather difficult to amster and it turned out way too small - my stitches ended up being really tight on this, very unusual for me.  My knitting group has all made the long scarf using Wool Ease Thick & Quick and it works wonderfully.

There are so many projects in this book that I want to do!! Grin

I bought a really ugly sweater at the Salvation Army for $2.99 for the express purpose of "recyling" the fairly cool yarn (a pretty chocolate varrigated color) and this morning, I was bored (but not bored enough to start the increases on Salt Peanuts) so I decided to make the Uptown Scarf from Weekend Knitting. Instead of using just the one yarn, I added a rainbow eyelash yarn with slubs that I picked up at AC Moore. I think that I used about 100 yards (or two sleeves as the case may be  Tongue) and am fairly pleased with the outcome. My daughter thinks it looks like a "teacher" scarf . . . I guess that means no allowance for the week.

I made the gloves (with slight alterations) for my mom as a christmas present, and I totally agree that the directions were wayyyy too wordy. But I love LOVE love how they turned out.. I am so making some for myself next.
