Hi! I got this wonderful book for Christmas and was happy to find this KAL. I've cast on the Chevron pattern on page 73 using Fortissima Mexico 9076. I don't have enough of the leg done yet to see the full effect of this pattern on the yarn, but I'm looking forward to seeing those zig-zags. I also cast on the Twin Rib pattern for a CIC sock in some Peruvian Wool from elann.com. I don't have a blog, but enjoy going to them to read and see what everyone is doing. I don't know that my life is interesting enough to blog about it. Happy Knitting!!
