I hope everyone's projects are going well so far. I received my copy of VLT about a week ago and am starting with the melon stitch stole, with Elann Super Kydd (a kid mohair and nylon blend) and 4.5 mm (US 7) needles.
I'm about one quarter of the way done with the center section. It's going quickly, even though I'm mostly only working on it as a take-along project during the commute. The yarn is very soft, and IMHO, is a great substitute for Kidsilk Haze. I have a few more pictures on my blog.
