Operation New Project THLW GO!

I am very excited for this project! I'm making mine for my Honeymoon to Japan. I'm leaving in a couple days so I need to get workin'!

I'm using Bernat Softee Chunky in Grey Heather. It is acrylic, but I didn't want to be waltzing around Japan in wool leg warmers in 80% humidity. (><) I enjoy working with it so far- it knits up nicely.

Before I started the project I did a gauge swatch and I couldn't get the right gauge with the size 9 needles (it was too big), so I sized down all the way to size 6 and didn't get the right gauge. I went ahead with the size 9 needles and I'm glad I did because I think these will fit me snuggly. (^_^)

Time to run off and start knitting! *wave*
