  1. I love the thought in this picture! Sometimes it’s good to not to stay in the moment too long but focus on the final product… šŸ™‚ (in my case, you could take a picture of a stack of crumpled notes and a stethoscope – future doctor…)
    Though indeed, this yarn looks beautiful! I tried to learn to knit several times but I never really got the hang of it. I’m looking forward to seeing the pictures of your sweater!

    1. The sweater is a big leap for me – way more complicated than the hats and socks and scarves I know how to do. Luckily I have lots of help to make sure it turns into something I will enjoy wearing. BTW- I gave up trying to learn to knit at age 11 and figured I would never ever knit. it is a lovely surprise to be able to do it – and it is thanks to patient and supportive teachers that I now can knit. So don’t give up if it is something you really want to do – it is way easier than playing the harp.

    1. I suspect that the progress of this sweater will be well documented.I won’t let myself start it until I finish the second sock of a pair – no half-finished socks allowed!

  2. Nice color, looks like it will make a nice sweater. How long do you think it will take? I am ignorant in these matters, you know. I agree with everyone else and hope you share the finished product!

    1. I have NO idea how ling it will take to knit a sweater, and ignorance is probably a good thing. I might find the idea too daunting if I really knew what it will take to knit a sweater. I will definitely be posting photos of the work in progress and the finished product. I still have to finish a sock before I can start, so it will be a while before anything shows up on the blog.

    1. I have to finish the matching sock for the current pair, and then I can start the sweater. I am determined that knitting will not become a collection of half-finished projects, or socks!!!

    1. I have a sock and three hats to finish first. I promised myself when I started knitting that I would NOT end up with multiple unfinished projects, as I am wont to do. So the yarns I purchased for the hats are going to be used first. And I refuse to end up with only one sock of a pair, so the matched sock has to be finished! BTW, how are you and the sock loom doing?

      1. I have to admit that I really struggled using the loom. Things were tight, would slip off and since I have the patience of a gnat (?), I realized I didn’t want to knit my own socks badly enough to get through it. I love your socks and am glad you are able to do it. So far, scarves and shawls are my bailiwick. Although my yarn shop had a simple first cardigan knit class, but it was on a date I was out of town. Hopefully they’ll repeat it. I’ve not done a hat yet either.

      2. I am hoping having to practice increases and decreases and purling on the hats will get my skills up enough to tackle the sweater, with lots of help from the yarn shop. The learning curve on the sock loom is annoying…tho if you can stand it long enough to get through the first pair, the second pair is a breeze in comparison. At least then you know how to get through the really hard parts.
