Yarn: about 6 balls of Wool of the Andes in Snickerdoodle ($1.99/ball)
Who knew that Vanna White moonlighted as a popular crocheter? As it turns out, the famous letter spinner is a spokeswoman for Lion Brand, complete with her own yarn and knitting and crochet patterns. It's at least better than the celebrity scarf craze. One of her patterns--or rather, two of them, as Lion Brand likes to repackage their wares--caught my eye, and I knit it up before the fall weather even hit. It is surprisingly warm and stylish, although a bit bulky under the arms. Take your pick of the long or short pattern (mine is the short one) and knit away!
