As promised, I finished my gauge and casted on :-). Here is what I have so far, I have about 1 & 1/2 " done of the back, I am using size 10 needles and Galaway HighLand Heather pure wool yarn. It is really pretty and soft. I am using a lighter worsted because it doesnt get that cold here in Roseville Ca. Anyways I am going to knit a little more and then take a shower & go to bed. Ta Ta for now.
