On the Needles

Thank you guys for your help and suggestions...I've finally cast-on the back panel for the size 44 in hoodie. I brought my swatch, pattern and calculator to the SnB last night and thanks to Knitterary for giving me a good push. I was a bit intimidated by the whole “New Project” and wanting and needing it to turn out JUST RIGHT. Looking at the patterns final measurements helped in my decision to go up in size and here is a photo of the cast on ribbing for the back panel. Oh Joy.

I can tell already this will be a fast knit and the yarn is very pleasant to work with. The yarn is Berroco and I can't wait to see how well the cables pop!

Take care, until next time, Knit-On
