Casting on & saying hello

Hi there - a newbie to the KAL - as soon as I saw this I knew I had to knit it up. Dashed out to buy Rowan Luxery Cotton DK immediately - this is a perfect project for knitting meetups!

The yarn is totally sumptious [
click the pic on top for an extreme close-up] however a wee bit splitty. Not splitty exactly ... it's just that there are very distinct strands and with the fibres used they won't stitck to each other, so it's quite easy to accidently make extra stitches when not paying attention [like at a knitting meetup!]

Anyways- the colour at the bottom is more true, and I have to finish Icarus before I get to the ribbing, as it has the size needles I need for that bit and I'm trying to be strong and not buy too much.
