i just joined the knitalong and wanted to introduce my self. i am in portland oregon. i just learned to knit this past september. ribby cardi will be my first sweater. i am knitting her out of cascade sierra 80% pima cotton 20% wool. it should be nice and light for a spring/summer jacket. The body is a deep red and i am doing the sleeves out of a light blue. sadly the blue was on back order so i only received the red.
