I finally cast-on!
I finally cast on for my Central Park Hoodie yesterday. It will be a Christmas Present for my sister - so I am super glad for this blog to talk about this otherwise secret knitting.
The yarn is Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed in a light gray colorway (number 360010). It has flecks of black, light pink, blue and green in it. It is a super soft yarn - and a two ply that has the look of a singles yarn. I was able to spit splice the first two balls together perfectly, which I am really excited about because it means less ends to weave in and I will save a little extra yardage.
I am knitting the fronts and back together, and will split at the armpits...for now I have finished the 3.5 inches of ribbing, plus the first 4 pattern rows for the sweater.
And as you may notice, I marked each cable with a F or a B to say whether or not to hold the cable to the front or the back, now I don't have to watch the pattern anymore, just my row counter. I am really excited to see this fabric shape up!
