Ok, so today I made the blessed pilgrimage out to the new LYS I discovered and bought 21 skeins of DROPS Eskimo yarn for my sweater. Initially, I wanted to buy a beige colour, but sadly they didnt have 21 skeins of this colour, so I had to pick another one. I ended up picking out a light/seafoam green colour, which, I know, sounds awful, but really I think it looks good (I'm an occasional sucker for pastels)! I came home, did my gauge swatch, and gave myself the green light to start. So its on, my first sweater is begun and so far I have gotten past the ribbing and about 5 inches of the main body on the front part of the sweater. Wish me luck!
