Starting the Mermaid

Well, I did at first think the yarn is itchy, but as I've worked with it for a few hours now, it seems to be softening as I knit. Or, I'm just getting used to it. Either way, I am really enjoying watching it come together. I LOVE texture, and this is not disappointing. Even as I knitted through the initial rows of Coral, the heathered yarn makes the fabric really lovely, and it wasn't even that boring to knit. I was worried. This is going to be one of those projects that I will be in a hurry to finish, and this can be a problem as I will cut corners where ever I can. I don't want to do that here. I just have to remind myself how much money I spent for this kit. That should keep me in line!
