Yarned and ready (oh, yeah- I said it)

The yarn for the CPH has finally arrived! This will be my very first sweater ever, so I figured what the hell and splurged on the recommended Tahki Donegal Tweed.

This yarn has caused me to truly realize the full extent of my knitting madness for two reasons:

1. Husband came home and caught me throwing the skeins into the air and letting them fall over me, a la Scrooge McDuck with his money

2. I took this picture out on the sidewalk next to a fairly busy street because it was the only place the sun was shining and everyone knows the only way to truly capture the beauty of the yarn is in true sunlight. It was 5 in the afternoon and I was wearing pajamas (after spending the day knitting). People were stopping their cars and staring at the ground, trying to figure out why this homeless woman was taking pictures of string.

Anyway, I've already learned so much from this KAL, so thanks for your posts! I can't wait to get started!
