I'm in!

Well, this is my very first knit-along. I am new to this blog stuff and although I enjoy reading them, I haven't the slightest idea about how they work. I sound like I'm 82, but I'm not. I'm 28, but I just don't understand computers all that well....
Anyways, I've been admiring this pattern and spent yesterday cruising the internet to see what others have used to knit this sweater when I stumbled upon this knit-along! Lucky me! So I decided to give it a go and headed off to my local yarn store (where I work part-time!) to find great yarn for this super looking sweater. I agonized about whether or not to do several yarns or only one, but I ended up deciding on one yarn and if I love the pattern enough, I can always knit it again in many yarns, right? (Not that I don't have a gigantic list of all the patterns that I'd like to knit!)
SOOOOO...... I decided on Noro's Silk Garden and cast on right away while my daughter napped . My wrist/arm has been bothering me from crazy/addict knitting, so I didn't knit last night so that I could start this today. (I could only not-knit for one day and my wrist still is yucky, but I MUST KNIT.....
So I am loving the pattern and will try to convince my computer genius husband to help me post a picture tomorrow. Is this really possible for me? The computer, with pictures of my knitting on it? We'll see..... Happy knitting, fellow Pinwheelers!

Ooooh, silk garden! Can't wait to see it. I think I like the look of varigated/stripy yarn better than many colours for this pattern.

Welcome to the knitalong (and to blogging ;0)

I think I would prefer the varigated yarn on the adult sweater also. I love the strips of colours for a baby tho. Good luck with your sweater!
