I just wanted to drop a line and introduce myself. I got my kit on Saturday and started one sleeve and while it is too early to check my row gauge, my stitch gauge seems fine. I am using bamboo needles because they were the only needles I had that were the right size. Gotta say, not a fan. So it's off the LYS to pick up yet another set of metal needles. I am trying to maintain my discipline as I also received a ton of supplies for my Christmas knitting and while I hope everyone will appreciate MY Autumn Rose, they probably want their gifts more. In the mean time, I will keep watching all of you lovely people and your lovely sweaters.
