Now I can start this. . . .and here's a close up. . . .
First I have to check my gauge, and recheck it and check it again!! I have a confession to make - I rarely check gauge :-o shock, horror! I know I know, but usually I'm knitting baby clothes and if anything it comes out just a tad larger, which is never a problem for babies cos they grow so fast. But of course I want this particular garment to fit well - very well, so I won't cast on until I know for sure my gauge is right.
Also arrived today, some cotton yarn I won on Ebay this week!
This is Cascade Cotton Rich. 4 white, 3 navy and one violet like color. Not sure what I'll use it for yet, I'm thinking perhaps some Itty Bitty Hats (at some point this year!).
OK, I'm off to knit!
