Re: [st_brigid_kal] Starting on St. Brigid
After a couple of months of testing, I have also started mine. I am using size 6 needles, I always have to use smaller size than called for. I got my beautiful Cascade 220 Ranier Heather a few days ago. Bought 11 skeins. I know that will be more than I need, but just to be sure I got extra. It is a gorgeous grayed purple/lavender. I love it.
I learned the pattern fairly well during my testing process, and am really enjoying it, I started with the back and got to row 5 last night. I have already done a full repeat on my testing, so I know I can do it!!
I also started a Na Craga by Starmore as an experiment and am loving that. It is in the same book. I also got mine from the library.
Your blog is great, thanks for posting a pix of the yarn. I look forward to hearing about your progress. Feel free to email me privately too, I think it is great that we are starting at the same time.

daughter found it for me at a library.
I'll be starting on it tonight, did a swatch and I'll be using 4mm (6 us)
needles and Berocco Ultra Alpaca yarn in Masa, which is a medium yellow.
Hopefully I won't have too much trouble reading the pattern.
You can see the yarn on my blog:
