Getting Started

Okay I have the clues printed, I have to swatch a bit to double check what needles will give me the right gauge and I picked out some yarn,

I have a fairly sizable stash of Cascade 22o that I bought a while ago. Some from individuals on Ebay and some from sales on Internet sites.

The shade I picked is 7804 which is salmon pink color darker than what shows on my monitor when I check the Cascade web page of colors. I think that would be good for children.

Well, off I go to find a few sizes of my needle tips and cables!

For charity knitting, don't get too hung up on gauge...anything from 5 to 6 stitches per inch should produce a pair of human-proportioned children's mittens!
