New to this

Well I caved and joined the knitalong. I have been lurking and watching everyones beautiful CPH come out. I just couldn't join until I had the perfect yarn in the perfect color. I found it too. Cascade 200 colorway Ruby. I love love love the deepness of this red. I'm so excited to get started. So far I have decided to knit it all in one piece and I'm still thinking about the arms, if I want to do them in the round or not. I have swatched and decided that I like the fabric a little bit more firm than see through, which I feel that 17-18-or even 19 spi looks like to me. So I think that I'm going to cast on for the largest size and go down to about 5 spi. I hope that this make up for the small guage. Thoughts?
