Sitting ready.........needles in hand

I soooo want to cast on tonight even though it's only the 31st.....can I? can I? huh? huh?? OK, I'll wait patiently Mom. I have my yarn and needles ready to go, the first pair I'm going to do is a basic stockinette stitch with a picot cast on. It's a wool/bamboo combination. It feels deliciously luxurious and should be a good weight for summer.

Have you guys checked out Tag Galaxy? It is so cool. When you first get on the website, it asks for a tag search and if you input Ravelry, you will get some amazing photos. Take a look at it but prepared to spend some time on it, it sucks you in and won't let you go.

Good luck to all of you in this huge challenge.
