First things first - everyone's pics so far are great! I can't wait to get started - I'm having to hold off on my cast-on because I have a strict deadline of May 18 for a gift for my Dad.
I did order my yarn today and couldn't be happier - WEBS has Classic Elite Skye Tweed on overstock ($3.99/ball), so I jumped on it. I love purple anyway (not to mention the purple in the pattern pics), so I went with colorway #1295 (Grampian Purple).
And, if the Skye Tweed comes out looking anything like it did for brooklyntweed's sweater, what more could you ask?
