Just got the knitting needles I bought on eBay. I really recommend this seller, kpd235, the shipped the needles in a nice tube I can use to store them. Now I can start on the Bernat Breeze blankets!
Of course I have already changed my mind about the pattern - I have decided for a basketwave pattern with a garter stitch border. I casted 70 stiches on needles #15 and .... let's knit away.
