Greetings all, Morgen here just checking in.
I have my yarn chosen (from stash, yea me!); Fleece Artist Sea Wool in a raspberry color. It is actually a lighter color than the picture shows. I think it is a true raspberry color. I have the pattern printed out, but I have not yet colored in the charts, so will do that tonight. I have dug out size 4 needles, although I will probably play around and swatch some tonight to make sure that I like this yarn in lace on that size needle. I tend to like my lace knit at a tighter gauge as well.
I am also working on a sweater for the Knitting __lympics, so while I plan on working on Prairie every day I don't expect to pick up steam on her until after the 12th of August.
I hope all is well with all of you and I am very happy that the start of this KAL is finally here!!! I can hardly wait to see what yarns and colors you all have chosen!
Thank you Blog Mistress Melissa for reminding me to check for errata. I never would have remembered and I think you saved me heaps o' heartache! ANOTHER good reason for knit-a-longs; other people watch out for your back!
