Casting On

Today is the day... My major hold-up has been finding size 11 dpns! But finally on Saturday I visited a yarn shop out in the toolies (which is now my new favorite shop)... and managed to escape with only spending $46 (size 11 & 13 dpns in birch, and 4 skeins of Lamb's Pride for a felted purse for my mom)

So, here's my yarn... Noro Big Kureyon, color 4
It is being modeled on my wonderful brown couch.. I think the colors will go nicely with my living room decor! I'll cast on today at lunch, and hopefully get to the point where I can put it on my circular by tonight... working with those double pointed needles is just a bit difficult for me so much fun! Once I get it halfway done, I'll decide what kind of fuzzy/furry stuff I want on the outside.

Yay! Finally! Nice Noro! The dpns were a bit tricky.

you aren't kidding...

I practiced last week with 9's and some cheap Red Heart and thought I had it... but today I tried 3x and still had it goofed up.
