Joy of Joys

Sci Fi Friday returns tonight! While I love the Stargates, Battlestar Galactica is my favorite show on television. I like it even more than the Soprano's (which is a tall order, believe me). If you haven't watched give the show a chance tonight on the Sci Fi Channel 8pm EST.
Casting On
I cast on for a new sweater while I should be working on the Nordic Sweater

It's the Fall Vogue Knitting Hooded Pullover, knit with Crystal Palace Merino Frappe using Size 5 Bryspun Circs.
The pattern is simple and written well. I loathe 1x1 ribbing but it works with the yarn. The Merino Frappe is 75% Merino Wool, 25% Nylon. It's composed of a center grey strand surrounded by the fuzzy Merino. It knits up very soft and the drape is fluid like. The Bryspuns are a dream to knit with, lightweight, and with fantastic points. I'm also using Bryspun Circs on the Nordic Sweater (Forgive me Karen for taking so long to answer your question). Speaking of the Nordic Sweater, it seems that I am at an impasse. I'm at the point where I have to decide if I want the rounded shoulder look of a yoked sweater or the square shouldered look of steeks. I think Steeks will be better for the sweater since there won't be regular decreases which could interfere with the colorwork.
Well that's all I have for today folks. Have a great Weekend.
