I'm Finally Ready to Start!

I've been anxiously waiting for my yarn from Elann. I am also using Luna, a rayon and cotton blend. It is shiny-beautiful. I'm using coppered sienna, which is an orangish color that will go with a cardigan I have.

Unfortunately, in my excitement to get my order placed, I ordered 4mm needles instead of US 4. So I have some size 6s that I don't need. I am going to swatch with the 5s from my Denise kit and see if I get gauge. I tend to knit tight, so I'm hoping.

This is a very challenging project for me, so I'm a little nervous. Seeing everyone else's progress is very encouraging. I may not finish any time soon, but I'm going to give it a good effort. :)
