Good to go!
Yesterday I finished the sweater I wanted to finish before starting on this one (you'll be able to check out a pic of it later today on my blog when I get a chance to post it), so I gauged yesterday afternoon during my son's speech therapy and got 7sts=1" on 3s. I find that my gauge loosens a little when I actually start a project, so I'm going to stick with what I've got and hope that everthing will turn out okay. I'm going to cast on either today or tomorrow. Yay!!!
