First One

This blog is going to be mainly about what I am knitting. I have a number of active projects on the needles.

I am one sleeve and some buttons away from finishing Acorns from Twist Collective Fall 2010. Here is my project page on ravelry.

I am using Sundara Aran Silky Merino in the Aged Oak Barrel colorway which is just beautiful. I have a tighter guage of 20sts over 4" but am compensating by starting with the XS and increasing to the S size. It is still pretty fitted.

I probably picked up too many sts on the garter bands (I am doing separate bands in garter rather than one continuous reverse stockinette) but I intend to block the body out lengthwise anyway, especially around the Acorns.
