Hey, is that what I think it is?

I just had my first knitty-on-the-street sighting! I was headed back to work after browsing the Stitch DC sale (Marie was there with Cole. Very cute.) and I saw a woman walking down the street wearing a Calorimetry. I almost stopped to ask what she used (it was black with flecks of jewel colors), but it was cold out and I wanted to get my lunch.
From the sale (I love sales!): I now have 9 balls of mission falls in nice oatmeal colored wool for a fairisley pullover with some christmas yarn, and one ball of Fiesta La Boheme in “Abalone” to make
this scarfywrap thing Triada from the summer 05 interweave.
ETA: Pardon me while I grump out for a minute. This pattern calls for size 17 circular needles (16″ or 24″). 17s! 12.75 mm! I wish there was a needle exchange program – I don’t want to buy 17s for a single project. I don’t even own 15s! It isn’t like I use needles like this all that often. I think a size 8 is a huge needle! Does anyone have a 17 I could borrow for the week? Please? With a cherry on top?
