Sweater #2's wee beginnings

Though I could not wait to get started on my second sweater (ok, it's a VEST, but I'm counting it!), it took until this weekend to actually pick up the yarn and get working. I've had so many other things taking up my time, but after a long day of sewing (more about that later), my fingers were dying for some knitting.

I wrote a bit about my plans and my yarn in this post, so I won't repeat it. Suffice to say that I am NOT disappointed. This yarn feels absolutely divine. Turning it into a ball was even fun! Knitting is fabulous, and the small amount I have knit feels so soft and sensuous. I'm going to enjoy this.

So I present to you the first inch (out of six inches) of ribbing, on the back:

And this is one of the many things in shades of blue, white and gray, that I have planned for Project Spectrum.

That's a LOTTTA ribbing, isn't it? I'm sure it will be nice. I like the shiny of the yarn. Mmmmmm.
