I bought some lion brand wool-ease for it today- dark rose heather. We'll see how it goes.

How is the wool ease working out?  That's what I'm thinking of using.  Although the Cacade 220 sale sounds tempting.....

Indie-knitter, would you mind letting us know the cast-on method you used?

I'm pretty sure I just used basic long tail cast on, but I think any other kind would work, just as long as it's not too tight.

Oooohhh I so want to do this. Although I have been knitting for about 4-5 years I haven't worked up enough courage to knit a large piece like this before. Just hats and scarves and toys. You think this would be too hard for me to work on?

I'm in! I have a bunch of Wool of the Andes in Grass that I've been trying to use, but I think I found the perfect pattern right here! And this way I don't even have to buy new yarn, hoorah!

Is Wool of the Andes itchy??  I have never used it but it looks a little like Reynold's Lopi which I find itchy as heck.

... I want to join this knitalong but I am totally stuck at this "choose a yarn" stage....

I didn't get my ebay bid, so I'm going to go ahead and use the cascade.  I'm thinking lime green or light brown.  I want something crazy, but I also might want something more practical.  Ahhhh, decisions, decisions!

How are the yarn decisions going? I think the blue is really pretty sunshineknits, but I am sure brown would be awesome as well. Juniper practicality, I think, is more on what colour you would wear more, not what seems most neutral, so which colour would you wear more?

My progress is pretty slow. I am about 1.5" into the stockinette after the ribbing, but I have a couple of high priority projects I need to get done as well. Hopefully it won't be too long before I am done.
