Emmaline's Sweet Baby Jane

I got the yarn for Emmaline's little jumper in the mail about a month ago. I can't believe it has been that long.

This is Woobu from Blue Moon Fiber Arts in the color Tanzanite. The color isn't quite what I had expected given the photo on Blue Moon's website, but I am still pleased with it.

Let me just say these hanks are huge! Look at how big this one is in my hand!

Isn't that crazy? It took me a very long time to wind these hanks into semi-cakes with my nostepinde. But, at least I know I got my money's worth!

The yarn has a wonderful drape to it, and I can't wait to see how the finished project turns out.

I cast on last night and have altered the pattern a little to knit in the round (I hate seaming!). I cast on 156 stitches for the size 2. I am hoping to have it done for my little girl's birthday. We'll see how things progress.

What size needles are you knitting these on? So far so good!

Sorry, I'm always forgetting something. Size 4 needles.
