after fiddling with some different size needles, i settled on 7's. they're green too!
oh, i forgot to mention, this is the sweater i've committed to ... it's debbie bliss's "lara" from her _alpaca silk_ book. i've been thinking about making it for some time now, and just got the urge to cast on today. (read: i haven't finished my backyard leaves scarf or twisty scarf ... but, i'm almost finished! so, i guess i felt free to cast on for something new, since i almost have two FO's on the horizon.)
and now that it's official, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
