Yes, I did get the updated version. I got it on Ravelry, but it's also on the website. I also joined the group.
I've got some other things I need to finish first, but I've been thinking about yarns. She used wool, but for summer sweater I'm thinking about something like Plymouth Jeannee. It's a 50/50 cotton acrylic blend and is very inexpensive. I feel somewhat obligated to buy it at my LYS, but they don't have great colors so I may get it online. It's about the same price though.
