Falling into Fall

I think that it's about time to try this blogging thing again. Fall is here (well, sort of) and I am full of project ideas for the season so this will be a great way to keep motivated. First up is a pattern that I have been talking about using for over four years, Norah Gaughan's knitted panniers. Originally my plan was to frog an old sweater and use that yarn, but the sweater's construction prevented that from being a possibility. Then, I went back and forth about what yarn I wanted to use for the project, Lopi is out because I find it too rough to knit, and I need something that isn't going to be prohibitively expensive. Today I added two bags of Cascade Eco+ in color number 4010 to a shop order specifically for this project. Cast on in t-minus seven days.
