OTN - Flint

I finally, after months of wanting to, cast on Flint - my first top-down cardigan.  Thankfully the designer, Samantha from KnitQuest, created a couple of videos to show how some of the stitches were done. 

I finished the first 15 set-up rows this afternoon.  The blue/white yarn on top is waste yarn that I used to cast on my initial stitches.  That will be taken off, I just didn't get to it yet.  The two parts with "holes (or yarnovers)" are the beginning of the sleeves. 

So far I'm liking knitting this...especially since I can "try it on" as I'm knitting.  I'm absolutely loving the color of the yarn (Blue Moon Fibers' Woobu, colorway Spinel) too....a gorgeous blue-green.

Now I'm off to work on the applique that I was supposed to have done earlier today.
