New Knitting: Soft Kid Bubble

I headed over to my LYS Close Knit this past weekend to get some yarn for my next knitting project, the Soft Kid Bubble tunic from Laura Irwin's Boutique Knits. I'm using the recommended yarn, GGH Soft Kid, in this lovely dijon color. It was a little more expensive than I initially wanted to spend, but I couldn't find an appropriate yarn substitute that would still create the light fabric of the Soft Kid. I swatched yesterday, so I'll spend tonight casting on 200+ stitches.
