I used one ball of Cascade Fixation and it came out with the perfect amount of stretch and even had some yarn leftover!
I have also had quite a few questions about this handy dandy knitting headlight and where to find it. Amazingly, your best bet is 7-11 or any other tiny mini-mart. They only have them once in a while, so if you see it-grab it! I love mine, it gives off a suprising amount of light for such a little bugger! Good luck in your search :)

I just may have to get myself a knitting headlight for nighttime car knitting (when I'm not driving). Is it powered by regular batteries?

What size needles did you use?
Thanks for your version of the pattern, it's much easier to follow.
