Just Joining In

Hi, I just joined the knit along. I brought home yarn last night and started right away. I am knitting mine is Cascade 220 in greens and blues. The picture looks a little more gray than green but it really is green and blues. I am going to need a more ample armhole opening though. If my calculations are right, the 60 stitch armhole will be about 13.3", so, since I need it to be a few inches bigger, I am going to just knit a few more increases before I put the stitches on a holder and hope for the best. I think it should be ok to do that. It is amazing how quick this is going, but I am sure that will change as I approach those 300 + stitch rounds .
Happy Pinwheeling!

Welcome to the group Monica. I'm looking forward to seeing your sweater in it's final stage ... the colors may show up better with different lighting.
But you're off to a good start!
