Welcome to Blogger Land

I've finally taken the step from blogee to blogger.
As I'm sure you have guessed from the title I'm hoping this will become primarily a journal of my knitting projects, it's sort of an obsession I have at the moment.
Currently I'm working on the Tie & Dye cardigan from Phildar Pretemps 2004 (no pictures yet, still have to work out how this silly thing works). I've completed one sleeve and I cast off the right front/back piece last night. I'm loving the way it is turning out and the colour gradiation is just awesome.
I'm a bit anxious as to the fit though, I chose the size that should best fit me and knit a gauge swatch too, but I always seem to get about halfway through a project and start to worry, shit is this gonna fit me!? I pinned the bits I've done together and tried them on but they really need to be blocked, they were just too curly to be of any real indication.
I love the Phildar patterns, I don't think there's anything in the book I don't actually like, it's just a shame we don't get anything like that here in Australia, the yarn companies here are too busy chasing the novely craze, in which I've had absolutely no interest.
