hmhmhm, I have NEVER done a knit along! But I want to make this coat.
I'm going to the yarn stores (can ya imagine ANOTHER one opened in my neighborhood TWO blocks away) and peruse the various offerings.

I want to use Manos but I know that's a lot of bucks.
1200 yards huh? Ohhhhhhhhh it's so beautiful this project.

Andrea, that's so exciting, I just got all teared up.

OK ... not really ... but I am jealous that you got your yarn before I did. I'm hoping mine arrives by the end of the week. Of course, chances are I will likely get NOTHING done after it arrives because I won't be able to stand not casting on my very own EINSTEIN COAT! I've already been trying to figure out if I have enough yarn in my stash to make one of the sweaters in the book. It's just so embarrassing how impetuous I can be when it comes to knitting.

OK ... speaking of that ... I just printed out instructions on how to knit two socks at once. I need to go ...

Grrrrr

I just checked Joann.com for the status of my yarn order for this. It's been 5 days since I placed my order, and it still says "Being Processed."

I wonder if it's too late to cancel the order and place an order for the Lopi instead. double grrrrr

I was actually thinking I might use this project as my Olympic event.

Oooooh, my Smiley's order should be here Tuesday . Just enough time to finish up my Abigail, I think! Good incentive, too . Going to start with the Lopi.

That stinks, Julie! And it also seems unacceptable for them to still be "processing" the order! It's a work week!!! Who's working over at Joann.com?

Silveridger, what color did you get?

Oh Julie, you need to contact those people personally! The site may have the wrong info; I've had that happen before.

Okay, I've ordered my yarn!! I went with the Wonderwool in Braun. (It won't show cat hair as much. :rollseyes: ) But I'm sooooo excited--I want to start now!
