Hello from New Member and Question About Circular needles

Hello group!

I am looking forward to knitting this sweater with all of you! I love this pattern and can't wait to get started! I think I'm going to use the Tahki Donegal Tweed in the color 815, which is a Navy Blue with light blue tweeded in. I have one skein of that on hand, and plan to swatch it and make sure I like the color before I purchase the yarn for the sweater.

One question, since so many of you are well into your sweater knitting: has anyone used circular needles to knit the whole body at once? If so, how has that been working for you? I REALLY hate sewing seams, so I'm considering knitting the body in one piece.

Thanks for all your beautiful pictures, and I'm looking forward to sharing everyone's progress.

I also knit mine in one big piece. Technically twice, though one hasn't been totally completed yet. If I make another, I'll do it in one piece again for sure!

Hello there, I also knitted mine as one piece. This was my first sweater and it was easier than I ever thought it would be. When you start pay attention to the ribbing. When you knit in one pc. you don't need the k2 on a side panel to meet up with a k2 when you start the back panel. Make sure to read the whole pattern and map it out before knitting. It definintly makes a difference. Trust me, I know. I had to frog it once.

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help. Thanks, Amy
