Casting On Ropes and Picots

First blog entry! I am starting the Ropes and Picots Cardigan from IK Winter 2008. I bought this yarn at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York City last month.

A brown cardigan is a staple in my wardrobe - I had one for years and it basically fell apart, and I left my replacement on the bus last summer, so I am excited to have a new, hand-knit brown cardi soon.

The yarn is so soft, and it's superwash which makes it extra appealing. I am using Jojoland superwash Melody sock yarn as the inside of the picot. It doesn't look like it will show through t0o much, and I think the contrast of colors adds some interest.
