I'm official

I can now say I'm a sexy knitter! This is my first KAL with SKC. I'm late in the game getting Wicked started, but here is my progress after my second day. This is also my first sweater. I was having a difficult time getting it started but stuck with it. I hope that I got my gauge correct. So far I love the neckline. I'm using ArtYarns Supermerino 233 (ordered from Sarah's Yarns...Sarah gives a great discount for SKC members) and size 8 needles. The picture doesn't do justice to the actual color of the yarn...a very nice green.

Supermerino is so soft and cushy, you will love wearing it! My hubby loves my Wicked--says it's the cutest sweater I've made:) What type of discount does Sarah give?

Thanks for the comments! :) I wasn't sure if my post went through. Sarah said she gave wholesale pricing ($6.75/skein) to SKC members when I placed my order. It was so much less than other sites or LYS's in my area. I did notice the website pricing has gone down a bit since last year. Just give them a call and ask about the SKC discount. I love ArtYarns Supermerino...so soft! I'm making the short sleeved version so I could wear it before it gets too hot out here in Northern California.
