Something new on the needles

Thank you to everyone for the awesome comments about Thermal! It was so nice to hear that you like it too. Happily now I can move on to my next project - Wicked.

I cast-on for Wicked Sunday night and I'm already past the division for the arms! Wow! I'm using Lion Brand Cotton Ease (50% Cotton, 50% Acrylic) in the color Lake. I'm knitting the 36-39 inch size on size 7 needles. I did go ahead and knit the neckline on 6's as other people online went down one needle size with good results.

I tried the top on last night and so far it looks like it is going to be an excellent summer top. I was worried that the blue was a little too light in color for me, but I'm starting to really like it. The Cotton Ease is knitting up very nicely and feels good.

***Knitting Group is Tonight! We meet at the new Starbucks in Wilmette (corner of Lake & Laramie, just to the west of I-94 on Lake Ave.). We start at around 6:30 and go until 8ish. Any yarn enthusiast is welcome!***

I can't wait to see it in real life, I want to knit that top as well, & I keep hearing good things about Cotton Ease! That color will be so pretty with your red hair.
