I've only just begun, but already I'm loving the new techniques of this pattern and the feel of this yarn. I've never used this tubular cast on before, but I must say, it provides a lovely finished edge-I think it may become a new staple in my kntting repertoire.
Though I am a temporary Floridian, I wasn't always, and have no intention of remaining one forever. Knitting this sweater reminds me of a cozier time that I've been longng for. I'm stockpiling my cold weather wardrobe in anticpation of a cooler climate.
