Casting on!

I always love casting on a new project especially a pattern that I have never knitted up before.
I was going to make the little boy's hooded jacket and when I checked my huge stash of yarn I was a ball short of what I needed so I've decided to go with the little girl's short sleeved version.

One thing I love about knitting in chunky yarn is how quickly you see the fruits of your labours.  I managed to get the back knitted last evening and will hopefully start on the fronts later today.

I'm enjoying knitting the cable design although it does take a little concentration at first.

The shade I'm using is called Cork but to me it's more like a stone colour

I think it will look great with a pair of denim jeans!
