I'm off!

Hi everyone,

All your work has been very inspirational to me, enough that I'm finally biting the bullet and starting my very first sweater for ME. (Also my first cable project, yikes!) I cast on last night.

I'm using Cascade 220 in a heather color (I think it's called Silver Spruce Heather) that I first bought almost three years ago to make a sweater for my son; I think it's much better suited for this. I knit pretty tightly so I got gauge on 10s, but didn't like the fabric, so I decided to go down a needle size and up a sweater size. We'll see how that works!

I'm really excited about the knit-along (my first – thanks Jeanne for hosting us) and about benefitting from all your wisdom and experience. My goal is to finish before hoodies go out of style! Now if only I didn't have to wait for the kids to go to bed to knit ...
