While I do love the utility of the projects in this book - they can be modified easily according to taste and gender - I think it's WAY too expensive. Also, I am making the baby blanket right now and having issues with it - the same issues that everyone on Ravelry is also having.
Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb is, by far, hands down, my very very favorite yarn at Jimmy Bean's! It can't be beat, in terms of softness, stitch definition, sheen, and texture. One of my favorite patterns for this yarn is the Misty Garden Scarf from the "Scarf Style" book. This yarn truly looks gorgeous in a feather and fan pattern - even without blocking.
