I've decided to try and knit myself a sweater. I went to Skeinlane in El Cerrito last night and the wonderful women there helped me find a pattern and pick out some yarn that will work. I chose a heathered wool that is kinda wine colored. I think it will look really pretty.
I will be doing a fair amount of traveling for work soon, so I figured a good knitting project would work well for the time on the plane. Of course, I don't know how to increase or decrease on purpose yet. But hey, there's only one way to learn, right?
