Statement of Intention

I am going to knit a sweater for the baby.

There. Now it is out there, you know all about it, and I will actually accomplish it. Because that's how it works, right?

Seriously, though. Make me finish this. I like knitting, but so far all of my projects have been rectangles. True story. A sweater, even a very small sweater, feels like I'm taking things up about five million notches. So I'm a bit intimidated, to say the least. But I have picked a pattern*, purchased appropriate needles**, and chosen my yarn***.  So I'm already on my way!

Statement of Intention

*It looks like it might not be the hardest thing ever. Fingers crossed.

**On my second try...that says something about my ability to read and follow instructions, I think. Sigh.

***So soft! So pretty! I wish I could knit more quickly so I'd be able to pick out yarn more often.

Oh! And that's such a good one! I have it on my needles right now, in fact. Enjoy it!
