I finally decided to be brave and venture into people-sized knitting after over four years at it. I know, I’m slow. It was after trying the piglet that something sort of clicked in my head, and strange algebraic formula-like knitting patterns started to make a little more sense. Of course, I can’t do big-people knitting yet – with my patience I’ll probably never finish the project. But baby-size knitting! That seems more manageable for now. I decided to get this really sweet pale lilac Italian yarn to make something for my niece Natalie. It’s my sister’s favorite color, hopefully the sweater will fit the little one. I’m really excited about making a bunch of baby sweaters now. I almost want a little one so I can dress them up in cute knitted garments. LOL. Do you recommend her books to a knitting pattern novice like me? Let me know!
