Amanda - underway!

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).
