Yarn: Classic Elite Premiere in color 5207 (bright blue). I only used 8 skeins (about 864 yards). This is much less than the 1400 yards called for in the pattern. I bought the yarn from Webs.
Needles: I used a 24" US 6 Knit Picks options circulars.
Finished dimensions: I knit the 40 1/2" chest size and it came out a little large. I think the premiere yarn stretched after washing.
Still, I learned a lot with this project including how to read a lace chart and how to seam up a sweater.
