I think you should try to do it!

On the other hand...whereas 'round' knittting is easy...what about the pattern you've got your eye on?
Does it call for techniques that you're familiar with? Will you enjoy this?
It does look pretty straight forward, but thats just from reading it and i could probably be very wrong. Its from a magazine. its this one see raverly the pic is there of the pattern, obviously.....but yeah thought i'd just show it to you all.

You'll do fine once you get it started and you can always come back here for questions or advice (and a photo of the finished pinafore, I hope).
Yeah..now i've got to buy the needles lol! Fixed or Interchangeable? IF i buy interchangeable what if I never ever use them again? Argh decisions lol
