Mermaid Beginnings



بسم الله الرحمن الريم
I realized upon reading the directions that the needles are not US 3, but 3mm, or US 2. Glad I read. I usually just start knitting, and make a pattern of my errors, but I figured this cost me too much money to do that. I've been knitting with a bit of alpaca lately, and I must say I'm spoiled by the softness of that fiber. This is much more coarse, but I really like the bit of heathering in the yarn. If only I had more time...

oh, those colors are so pretty. everytime I see someone's own pic of a kit, always looks so much prettier than the finished project on hanne's site.

Be sure to do a swatch. I am on 3s (US, not mm) with Pagode. I did a swatch on 3 mm and it was simply too small.
