Gosh, one you guys start coming to this site, do you ever stop? Is it just me, I visit compulsively throughout the day.

Well, here we go.

Does anyone have Sally Melville's The Knit Stitch book handy? I'm about to make a yarn purchase and I don't remember what to use for that georgeous black sweater. i think it's called the Illusion, or something like that.

Here's what I'm looking at, will this work?

Willow's Mom,
I have this book...Is it the Opaque sweater that you are knitting?
If so the pattern used 10 skeins for medium size - using Classic Elite Imagine in color #9213. This is a lovely sweater...let us know how easy it was to knit...good luck!
