Yup... I'm taking the plunge.
I bot a pattern, some yarn and some needles from our local knitting store.
Enough of this scarf and hat knitting, I said. Time to knit a sweater! LOL!
I've started my swatch for gauge - 20 sts X 30 rows = 4" st.st.
The sweater is a little one for my latest grandson, 4 months old. It's a pullover in garter st and the pattern is written in big letters and very clearly and the lady at the wool store told me I can come in anytime for any help if I need it.
So I'm all set...
Wish me luck - it's been a long, long time...
To Knit or not to Knit, that is the question.
So happy to report that the sweater is coming along swimmingly... LOL!
The back is done and the front is well underway.
I love the colours of the yarn...
Now I know I'm feeling like it's working up fast but I also know from experience that the sleeves can take longer than either the front or the back... but I'm looking forward to finishing the front and getting to the sleeves...
Thanks everyone for your support for my new venture!
Just call me 'tinker'... think I'm becoming an expert at un-knitting... LOL! (too terrified to frog )
Anyway, the knitting is finally done. Stayed up til 2 last night unable to put the last sleeve down....
Next comes the blocking and then, evidently, I sew the right shoulder to the back and then p.u. and knit stitches for the neck... can't wait for that.
I have only a small amount of yarn left... but I think it will be enough but I doubt I'll even have a smidgen left when the thing is finished.....
Knitting is so exciting... doncha' think? LOL!
