A start

Hello, everyone! This is the first KAL I've ever joined; I'm excited to see how different and beautiful our dusters will all look! I started mine two days ago, and so far I have both the fronts, back, and one sleeve completed. Today I plan on finishing the second sleeve and blocking everything, so I can sew it up and begin knitting the skirt on Friday.

One word of advice to those who haven't started: pay attention to the directions for the back! Most of the time they say "measure x inches from CO edge," but they do once say "measure x inches from the beginning of the armhole." I missed that before and ended up with a back that was way too small! It seems others have also made the same mistake, so be careful! :D
