I'm tackling an adult-sized garment

I'm so excited! As you may know, I am a relatively new knitter, and have never yet knit a 'bigger' item like a sweater or cardigan (except for a baby cardigan) Somehow I just don't get round to it, even though I'd like.


Well, I thought I'd start with small steps. So I cast on Hug.


I reconed it's a garment, almost like a cardigan, but not as big and intimidating. Plus I really like it and will need someting like that for my always-cramped showlders.

I'm knitting it in Novita Rustica, an half-wool-half-acrylic funny yarn, that has been discontinued, on size 6mm dpns, to avoid the seaming. I am unsure if the size is right, and I am not 100% sure I have enough yarn. I do hope so! So wish me luck, I might need it.
