Let's start Hopeful

Hopeful was scheduled to be casted last night, but the curse of the circular needles struck again - Soleil was on my US #6 24". So I knitted and knitted Soleil until I got to the "Divide Back and Front for Armholes" and put Soleil on straight needles - I need to tell you, nothing gives knitting momentum as an accusatory look of Principessa's face while she asks: "You don't have more #6?" Luckily for me, I bought her this from Elspeth, that gave me some brownie points.

In the meantime, I found a knit-along for it:


And I joined. Yes, it is Principessa's project - even if, I am asking myself now, why did I pay for the yarn? - but I am doing all the purling.
