My needles have arrived and I’ve cast on the hem. I’m using a long-tail cast on, for no particular reason than it’s the one I always use.
This sweater will be slow going – partially because there’s almost 300 stitches per round (and that takes some time to knit), partially because it’s on really small needles (size 3’s), and partially because my weaving and sewing projects currently have higher priority. Still, I plan on dragging this to knitting-appropriate outings, so there will be some progress. Expect updates as I go.
