HKKAL: Casting on Axial

As I mentioned on Monday, I have big plans for the Holla Knits Knit-Along this year. Though the official cast-on day was Monday,  I have a few projects I’m trying to wrap up before I can give it my full attention (I’m looking at you, Forest).  Still, I have a tiny bit of progress to share: I cast on my Axial cardigan!

I’m loving it so far! Part of what makes the pattern so great is its unique construction. You start from the middle o the back and work your way out. That’s why it looks like a hat right now. But trust me, with that beautiful green Peace Fleece, this baby is going to grow like gangbusters.

Theme for the weekend:

Civil War Jams! I re-watched Ken Burns: The Civil War this week (as all good Americans should) and if you can get this song out of your head after 9 episodes, you’re made of stronger stuff than I.
