dustinac, those shows you listed that are coming in November are the same ones that I had Tivo'd this past month. The hat I knitted is the same one they will be showing again.
cheetahcalledchloe, first of all, I love your user name!! I was very intimidated knitting on circular needles too. My daughter saw a pattern for a skirt using Berroco suede. I had some other suede yarn I used for a purse for her and so I thought I would try it. HATED IT. I think because that yarn has no give, I was knitting very tight and I was using bamboo circs and it was too hard to knit. Well when I saw the show for the hat, it really looked so easy, that I had to try it. I was looking for metal circs for about a week but could not find the right length. I had to try this hat on bamboo ones. Ugh, But you know, this yarn has give and the knitting went really fast. I now want to try out the skirt my daughter wants.
