I love the jumper! I have just ordered the book and would love to knit it. I think bamboo would look nice, but when I get the book I will check the pattern and tension out properly. I tried to get a cheap copy on E-bay but both dealers I tried did not deal with New Zealand even though I have Pay-Pal. Never mind, even though I have paid full price here in NZ, it looks like a lovely book. Will join in as soon as got book and suitable yarn.
We have next to nothing in Kaitaia, just very cheap and nasty acrylic c#*@p or baby wool, so will have to source some nice stuff on line as well.
