A very sunny Forecast

Hi everyone! I'm Jenna (aka Cinemaknits) and I love this knitalong already - seeing everyone's yarn and cable variations has been inspirational.

I started Forecast last week, and after a knitting break this weekend I'm back in business:
Forecast!
I'm using Beaverslide's worsted weight in Prairie Coneflower. It's BRIGHT, yes, but I like my knits bold. The yarn is a joy to work with, and I'll definitely be using it again - their range of colors is pretty phenomenal. In this picture I was about ready to divide for the sleeves. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I had to do a few extra rows before dividing to get a comfortable fit. Now I'm plugging away on the body, which I'll probably lengthen.

Detail on my cables/bobbles:

I'm using a three-stitch bobble, and while they're still sticking out a lot I don't mind. I LOVE how textured Forecast is!

Anyway, I look forward to seeing everyone's progress (and what you decide to do for buttons - right now I'm at a loss.) Knit on!

Very sunny. That color will be perfect to wear on grey winter days.

Yellow is so underrated. Be careful with the website, you'll develop a button addiction and buy them for no good reason!

I love that yellow! I'm becoming more and more fond of yellows and oranges for some reason. Perhaps it's because of the season.
