Hi everybody, I just joined and started the cardi on Dec 16th - going slow because I suffer from knitting ADD. This is my first KAL - well, actually the second one I join, but we are starting to knit Mariah until February - and I hope this will keep me on track.
Friends call me Lu and I live in California - SF Bay Area, but I am originally from Italy, moved here 9 (gulp! nine years?) ago. I learned how to knit when I was 14 years old but I stopped when I moved here. I recently started again and I am out of control - projects lined up from now to next year.
As for the cardi, here is where I am:
I am using the Peruvian Highland Collection from Elann and I had to go up a needle size to get the correct gauge.
