Happy to be part of this KAL

Today has been an exciting day. After eyeing the CPH for some time and reading this blog getting inspiration I finally committed and decided to make this beautiful sweater. Since this is my first sweater I decided not to use the Tahki yarn but instead opted for the Classic Elite Skye Tweed which is on clearance at WEBS. While I love the bold colors many of you have chosen I ultimately decided a more neutral color was best for me.Sixteen balls of beautiful tweed in the Scottish Mist colorway arrived today. The name of this color also appealed to me. I've traveled to Scotland twice now and it is one of my favorite vacation destinations.
I've already swatched and am anxiously waiting for my washed swatch to dry so I can verify my gauge and start knitting. Hope I can finish this sweater before winter ends in cold snowy upstate New York.
