I have always loved Norah Gaughan's patterns and bought the book right away. I am trying to decide where to start, bouncing between the Swirled Pentagon Pullover -- I love Grumperina's! -- and the Ram Jacket, or the Cabled Spiral Pullover or a shortened version of the Hex coat, the first pattern I fell in love with. I am trying to knit from stash these days, so that is complicating my choice. Kathy's decision to leave the neckline of the Swirled Pentagon pullover as is was a brilliant one -- every picture of the turtleneck version in the book shows some rolling where the turtleneck meets the pentagons. I think Kathy's version shows off the brilliance of the pentagon design. Will decide today where to start! PS added: I want to make a shorter version of the Hex coat -- fingertip length -- and am trying to figure out how much less yarn I would need. Any ideas on how to do that?
