BTW, noticing that my yarn does appear to be thicker than others', I finally checked the WPIs. Mine's 18 or 19, where the yarn called for in the pattern is 25. I guess I should have checked this before I started but, oh well - I like the effect I'm getting anyway. When properly stretched, it's as holey as I could want, and now it'll also be plenty warm to actually serve as a very functional wrap just when I need it - worn with a little black dress to Barge Music (concert series on NY harbor), where I have hitherto frozen my @$^% off for lack of appropriate outerwear.

But I wonder - how many WPIs do the rest of you have?

I'm getting more like 18 or 19 WPI's as well. Loving the fabric that I'm getting, using 3.75mm needles. I've already got a never-ending project on 3mm's going, this one is meant as a filler project. It's going well though, and I'm happy with the fabric and the size so far. And that's all that really matters ;P

Hope the weather in NYC is as nice as it is out here in CA.
