New Beginnings

Raindrops pullover 
I've started a new pullover!  This is the Raindrops pullover and I'm doing it for the Eat.Sleep.Knit first quarter KAL.  I wasn't sure if I was going to do this one because Tin Can Knits isn't really my style.  Don't get me wrong, they've got some nice designs, but most of them aren't really me.  So I've been going back and forth, trying to decide if I was going to do this first KAL, but then I realized that I have four skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock that fade together really well (I was actually thinking of using them for a Find Your Fade) and the Raindrops pullover would work with them.

So, here I am, starting to knit.  I did prewash all of the yarn just to be safe.  Ironically, none of it bled at all when I prewashed it (which probably contributed to my not worrying about the Ravello and just tossing it in the washer).  I'm starting with Cove, then I'll fade into Jasper, then Worn Denim, and finally Ink.  Except for the Ink, the other three colors are discontinued and that makes me a little sad.  I enjoy the speckles, but Madelinetosh does these subtle variegated colors like no one else, and several of my favorites have been discontinued over the last couple of years.

According to the pattern, I should be making the XS or S size, but I don't want a zero or negative ease pullover, so I've decided to knit the M and then I'll block out the raindrop lace section at the yoke.  I think this will work.  Fingers crossed!
