So, even though I have several projects currently on the needles, I have been looking forward to casting on for Hey, Teach! for quiet some time now. I bought the Yarn and the needles several months ago, but have been waiting to start this project in order to do a knit-a-long with my sister who will also be starting her first sweater soon. (did I mention Hey, Teach is going to be my 'first sweater type project'? ) My sister got the yarn for her project recently and is only waiting for her new harmony wood knitpicks needles to come in the mail to start, so I went ahead and cast on a few days ago. I simply couldn't wait any longer! After all of the projects I've been doing lately on DPNS this project feels like a breath of fresh air. I'm knitting them on size 8 knitpicks circulars, which are like a dream to knit with, and I'm using the new comfy worsted yarn. It is so, so soft. I can't stop touching it and petting it. I love the way it's knitting up (although my gauge seems to keep changing and it's a bit noticeable in some places) I could probably finish this project super fast if I'm not careful, but I'll try to pace myself!
