Hi, thanks for the welcome. I am still deliberating the choice of yarn, but mostly because I can not wrap my mind around the 76 stitches we are supposed to cast on. I normally knit my socks with 56 stitches on 2.5mm needles and 20 stitches is quite a difference, even though I know cables and colorwork make it tighter. I am working up to that necessary leap of faith and will likely use smaller needles. Let's see how I like it then.
