has anyone out there knitted with skacel's "no kidding" and has anyone knitted with art fibers "baroque"?

i had to return city lights from art fibers since i found it to be very difficult to enjoy and i am used to high maintenance stuff. i love how skacel's no kidding looks knitted up - like chinchilla, but it's expensive and i'd like to know more before i purchase. thanks.

hi --

i've never knitted much with baroque, but it was one of the samples i ordered and so i have knitted a small swatch of it. i really liked it. i would love to figure out how to use a bit of it in a project somewhere because it's too expensive to make something entirely of it... is there anything in specific you wanted to know about baroque?

I've only knitted a swatch with Baroque but I did have to go down to a size 9 needle to make it look neat when I knitted my sample.

Yes, I've found that with many of the samples, I had to go down one needle size in order to obtain a swatch that wasn't too loose. maybe they knit especially tightly at artfibers???

i'm thinking of making a pullover with the mystic; but I'm not sure which pattern to choose!
