Just a little post to chime in and say that this is my very first knitalong and I'm very excited! Thanks, Laura and Amanda! Even though I just joined, I already feel like a slacker...I'm extremely impressed with everyone's progress so far. I have none to show yet, but hope to cast on for a regular ribbed-cuff cap soon with some scrap yarn. Once that's out of the way, I'm heading for Marnie Maclean's Flapper Hat, or Comet, or Nautilus. Or maybe all of them, who knows?
