I have never done a knit along. This has just changed. Iris from Artyarns sent me the yarn I needed to participate in her most recent knit along, now to be called KAL.
Most people know that I love working with these colors. I have dyed quite a few fibers in a similar colorway. Cashmere Glitter, which I will soon be stocking, and yes, in this color, is the yarn called for in the KAL. It is 100% Cashmere with a strand of glittery Lurex. Each skein is 50gm and 155m/170yd. The yarn is all hand painted-one skein at a time! It is made in the USA from imported fibers.
I wound the yarn into a ball Tuesday night using my swift and ball winder and then I cast on.

This tool comes in very helpful with this pattern. The pattern changes every row. This magnetic board from my LYS, The Fiber Factory (480-969-4346), is the perfect tool to mark where I am in the pattern.
Another thing I find very useful for this pattern is a really good glossary with pictures of the knitting terms. I grabbed my copy of this version of One Skein Wonders and opened it to the back.
It turns out the the 2 pages shown here had what I needed to interpret the shorthand in the pattern with visual instructions on how to knit the stitches.
