I cast on for Amanda, my KAL sweater with Fringe and Friends Knit-Along, or #fringeandfriendsknitalong. I'm seaming the sweater to keep its shape and provide stability. I'm knitting as written, with the back first. Only on the ribbing as I'm not a fast knitter. And I teach full-time, parent two kids, and do all the other spouse/housekeeping/friend things in my life. Still, I'm committed to getting this done within a reasonable timeframe. Here's the start, Cascade 220 in gray, on 3.5mm needles for ribbing (I'll switch to 4mm for the body).
