I'm making gifts for ME! I'm a very selfish knitter. I cast on for Starsky with Father's Gray WW, and have almost finished the back. It's looking good thus far, and the gauge seems okay.
I have Patience Blue WW to knit up the Tilted Duster from Fall Interweave Knits. Hopefully gauge will work out.
Then I bought two skeins of DK weight (olive root and cream) to make another Deep V Argyle Vest for myself.
Such fun! This is my first time trying Peace Fleece,...

This would be awesome if they'd be willing to do that!

I plan to make a few more for gifts, and I'll definitely continue with the slipcover idea for washability.

I finished up the buttony cardigan last night and will have to take pictures of both of them. I am able to devote a lot of time to knitting though -- I don't yet have kids, my house gets neglected and/or DH picks up the slack, I knit on the train to/from work, we eat fairly quick meals and DH always...
Yes - their website is www.handpaintedyarn.com - I would definitely get their yarn again. But we needed to have at least 7 skeins of each type and color of yarn for that to be ordered so people who wanted just a few skeins of one kind of yarn weren't able to get it unless someone else ordered the same.
There also was a quick Peace Fleece co-op recently, and you can go to their website and see their wholesale prices, etc. That one seems easier for people to get single...
