New to the group

Just wanted to say hello :) Just this morning I cast on a tomten for my newborn nephew. I am planning to make 4 tomtens back to back. This one for my nephew and one for each of my 3 sons. The newborn one I am making with peace fleece (yes I'm a wool junkie, even for baby stuff). I am using the Chickie Masla (light yellows) and plan to put a stripe in there somewhere and do the icord trim in a contrasting color as well. At this point I'm not sure what color that will be lol. I have cast on 72 stitches and my gauge is 13st/3inches. So I am hoping this will fit him right off and keep him warm and cozy this winter. So far I have knit about 2 inches. I am knitting on straights size 8.

I'll post pictures once I have something of substance to photograph ;)

Great to be knitting along with you all!

I think it's great that you are using the wool for the baby jacket. They need warm clothes! EZ would definitly approve.
