And So It Begins …..

As mentioned in a much earlier post this month, I’ve decided to join  the Beekeeper Cardigan 4-Day Sweater KAL.   This KAL kicked off yesterday and I’m excited to see if I can manage finishing a sweater in 4 days, but due to the size I’m making, it will be more like 6 days.

So yesterday I did my swatch for gauge and determined that I would need to use a size US 8 needle in place of the called for US 7, and go down one pattern size.

I am using my stash of Ella Rae Amity in color 29/Tan, which is a pretty acorn color.  I’m really loving how it is knitting up so far and I’ve made decent progress, but really hope to make better progress today.  I just finished the neckline, which is means I worked a total of 26 rows.  

One thing I must say about Marie’s pattern, I love how she has “check in” points throughout so you can check your stitch count.  This really is a nice pattern feature and it helps make sure you’re on track.  One thing I’m not liking is the way my increases are looking, so I’m hoping that blocking will help once I’m all finished.

As a reminder you can join in the fun and follow the progress in Marie’s Ravelry Group and in her group on FaceBook. 

Until next time ~ Happy Knitting!
