I love KPS! They are easy, I LOVE not seaming because I'm not great at it and it's boring, I love how well KPS patterns turn out and fit, without even blocking. I'm at the point where I'm ready to try some more complex projects, with more texture and color, but I love working on a KPS because it's lots of plain old knitting that's easy to do while watching TV and it puts me in that meditative knitting zone. I love using beautiful yarns in yummy colors with simple patterns. Right now I'm working on their men's zippered cardigan for dh in a gorgeous shade of Paton's merino. (been working on that since January, have one sleeve nearly done, just a sleeve to go and it's finished), and their bulky kid's jacket for dd1 in Sirdar Spree, a bulky cotton I got CHEAP at ds' school's Earth Day table (LYS closeout donated to school. $1.50 a ball for a normall 9.00 yarn!). I also just got their Kid's Bolero pattern for dd2, so adorable (I have some lovely Patons variegated in pinks, browns, and cream for that) , and I'm going to do the hooded tunic for ds and add a textured area to it that I"m taking from a Garnestudio pattern. And I love the kid's bulky hooded vest...
