Hello All!

I'm new to this KAL and I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Lauren and I'm thoroughly addicted to knitting! (Aren't we all? ) Please excuse the pictureless post, as I am at my mother's and am unable to upload any right now. Rest assured I am knitting away every moment I get. I am about 1/4 into the project, about 3 cable repeats away from shaping the sleeve caps. I chose to knit the body in one piece in attempt to avoid lots of seaming (hate it). I'm also planning on knitting the sleeves in the round, too. I'm using some Paton's Classic that I had lying around in a nice tangy green. The only mod I'm planning is lengthing the body a couple of inches to accomodate my freakishly long torso.

Anyhow, I am so happy to be here, knitting this fabulous pattern! Pictures soon!

-Lauren J.

I want to see photos - I swatched the yarn for this project about a month ago and then cast on two pairs of socks - so it has been pushed to the side, but I was thinking of knitting it in one peice, so I would love to see what you have done.
