I was standing in the Woman's Department at Walmart last night, waiting on DH to finish his cigarette, just kinda browsing when this cute little sweater caught my eye. I walked over and started inspecting the stiches. I'm thinking I could SO make that sweater! :knitting: Then it hit me...I can't even finish my sample scarf..:fingerwag:..what makes me think that I can create a sweater. Ah,....the reality of it...all in due time. But, it is a step in the right direction...

Yeah, and some people may even talk you into trying to make a sweater before you're ready! lol But that just brings some fun, interesting, hilarious learning experiences. But I know that you mean... I used to just be like Oh, it's a sweater. But now I'm analyzing and trying to figure out which decreases they use, etc. It's fun seeing the world through the eyes of a knitter; it definitely makes sweaters and socks much more exciting :happydance:

I'm horrible about doing that. Even with non-knitting things. We'll be in store and I'll see something and say "Hey, I can make that." and DH just rolls his eyes.
