i need to go to bed !
but instead, i'm up playing with yarn ! i couldn't stand to not start on the bulky sweater ... so, i cast on! there's a warning on glampyre's site that this pattern is not for beginners. no kidding! it's not a difficult knit, but right off the bat, there is a mistake in the pattern --- the numbers just don't add up, at least not to me. so, i'm making the adjustments i think should be made, and i've knitted up the first ball of yarn. yarn note : i rather like (gasp!) this wool-ease thick & quick. it's held up against all my false starts (i cast on and ripped at least a few times). i'm using size 11's too, so it's pretty quick. see ...
i'm sure it's hard to tell that it's a sweater, but you can see that i've knitted something.
now that i got my fix, i'm off to bed. of course, that means i grab a small stack of knitting magazines/books on the way to the bed ....
