Cast On Now!

Well last night anyway. I casted on all 216 stitch last night, it took me 3 times to get it right because I kept running out of yarn. I really do love the long tail cast on but miss calculating yardage is the one downside.

I love this pattern because I love knitting in the round. I will work on it tonight and this weekend and post a picture when I get past a couple rounds. My goal for this sweater is to finish it by the end of November so I can wear it all winter long.

One problem I am having is getting the 7 st/in. I get 6 st/in but I am afraid the knitted fabric will be too tight if I go down one more needle size considering I substituted the Louet yarn for KnitPicks Swish DK. What size needles are the Swish yarn knitters using?

I got gauge on 4's with the Swish DK. I'm a pretty tight knitter, though. Your gauge may vary from mine. You can totally go with the gauge you have and just go down a pattern size (depending on the math-you might have to go down more than one size). What colors did you get?

hmm ok well maybe I will just cut out some of the stitches.
My colors:
Moss
Asparagus
Petal
Pale Lemon
Nutmeg
Maple leaf
Cinnamon

I need to swatch them together because I don't know if they will look good. *shrugs*
