This is all very exciting. I've never done a knit-a-long before, but I couldn't really ignore this one, as it's a pattern I've been wanting to make for a while now, and I know there'll be some good photos and lots of support and comments from the Ravelling 365ers.
I spent a lot of time yesterday looking at different yarn options and colourways, and finally settled on Twilleys Sincere organic cotton in a colour called silver fern - a pale green I think. I found it for a very reasonable price on ebay, placed an order for it... then realised once I paid for it that I had in fact moved house since last time I used ebay, and hadn't yet got round to changing my address. I've e-mailed the seller to ask if they can send it to my new address, but so far I've not had a response. Nevermind, I still have a baby cardigan to finish before I start the bag, so a couple of extra days wait shouldn't be a problem.
