Call Me Cranky

How many knitters have the $480-640 laying around to spend on the kit for this sweater? It's lovely. It's hand-dyed cashmere. I get it. But come on. Even for a particularly flush knitter this is kind of over-the-top extravagant, no? And while I'm at it I thought it was really odd and un-Knitty-like to have a sweater that costs well over $200. Same designer/yarn company owner. Am I just an envious bitch? It seems to me that no matter how cheap a yarn is used in a Knitty pattern everyone is looking to do it cheaper.
