Every season, I make a list of things I want to do. This season's list included knitting my first sweater. Now it's almost the middle of November, and I haven't even picked out a pattern or purchased the yarn, so I've accepted that sweater knitting might have to be transferred to the winter list. I'm okay with that. Knitting sweaters is a winter-y thing to do, and I did everything else on this year's fall list including:
-dress up for Halloween and carve pumpkins
-go to the cabin
-bike or skate Marine Dr.
-go to the corn maize
-drink apple cider
...and a couple of other things I seem to have forgotten, but definitely did.
But since November's not totally over yet, this morning I thought knitting a sweater might not be a total lost cause, and if I start and don't finish it by the end of the month, at least I have a leg up on winter's list, right? I've learned many valuable skills this fall that will be helpful in knitting a sweater like knitting ribbing, knitting two at a time (for sleeves), and knitting miles and miles of stockinette in the round, so I feel ready. Scouring Ravelry and knitting blogs for the perfect pattern brought on today's big epiphany- I don't know my bust size. Is that the same as your bra size? I see a measuring tape in my near future.
It’s still a thing
