Cast on!

My yarn arrived yesterday, and cast-on accomplished! I love the KnitPicks Andean Silk. Sangria is a rich, deep, and lively color. More like cabernet sauvignon than sangria, but that's okay with me. Unlike others, I didn't swatch the cables, but when I swatched my stockinette it was right on. The swatch washed well also. For now, it's just mindless knitting, perfect for finding a litle peace.

I may need a little hand-holding later on in the pattern, however!

I have that same yarn in my Knit Picks basket right now for this... but I haven't made a commitment yet :-)
