The colors are a bit brighter than they look on the picture, but the yarn has a wonderful bloom already. I'm gonna love this when it is done.
I started this while at Knit Night last night and have done fairly well so far. May not have been the smartest place to try to cast on, but I managed.
We also met in the Undercroft, as another place had the Mission Center. It was a bit chilly, but still a good place, once we found parking.
