Pretty in Progress

The only gotcha so far is the sizing - I ususally wear small, this pattern has me at large... Hmm. I'll take the middle road and try the medium.
I'm using this yarn, Debbie Bliss Cathay in a periwinkle that homestyle amateur digital photography fails to capture. But the shine you see is all real - cotton, microfiber and silk, so nice to knit!
Here is the beginning, rib and rib and rib. I'm ready to start the pattern stitch, which is more rib and rib and rib. Fun! Now for the katcha katcha thingy.
