Hi, Everyone! I'm very excited to be joining this KAL. I just bought my yarn and starting swatching last night. I'm using Rowan Felted Tweed in Carbon (159).
This color is really beautiful. It's a dark grey (almost bluish), with lovely flecks of brown, cream, and blue. I started with size 5 needles and tried both the rib and stockinette. I'll switch to size 4 tonight to compare. 5 looks like it's a little too big. The stitches are fuzzy and I was too tired to count them accurately last night!
I can't wait to get started!
