New Member!

Hi, I'm Rebecca and I'm so excited to be joining this KAL! I have to wait 2 more weeks before ordering my yarn and that is hard to do! But I'm finishing up some small wip's while I'm waiting. I'll be knitting Enid in Telemark since the Whiskey although beautiful doesn't fit the budget right now. I've decided on the dark chesnut brown for my main color. Um... I may actually be a little crazy for admitting this to you all but after 2.5 years of knitting..... Enid will be my first sweater (as well as my first attempt at any colorwork at all). I'm not even allowing myself to think about the steeks yet or my brain might explode. I'm anxious to learn more about tweaking the waist & bust shaping on Enid that several of you have mentioned as I'm a very full D cup. This is gonna be a fun ride! Thanks for letting me knit along.

This is my first sweater, too! We picked quite the doozy to start with, huh? We're in good company, though. The others are all experienced knitters with multiple sweaters under their belts. I'm so glad you decided to join!

Oh- by the way, I had considered telemark, too! I can't wait to hear how it goes!

Great to know I'm not the only sweater virgin! LOL

Hi Rebecca and welcome to the KAL. This is a beautiful sweater to start out with. I've made lots of sweaters, but I've never steeked before. I'm really glad we have this KAL to help each other along.
