New project – Fair Isle jacket

I’ve just cast on a new knitting project; the first of the baby items from my Etsy store, picked by a friend for her new baby.

I don’t know where I read about .5″ of yarn for a long-tailed cast on, but it worked perfectly – I needed 175 stitches, so I measured roughly 90″, and I cast them all on the first time with only a shortish tail left.

I’m pretty sure I did my second swatch on 3.5mm needles, but I only have 3mm and 3.25mm in circulars.  That’s what’s called for in the pattern, so I’ll start with them.
