New Knitting Class

I am currently taking a "Round & Round Sweater" knitting class. I thought the class would be a neck down all in the round sweater but no it started from the bottom up and just made 3 tubes and connected them. So it isn't as earth-shattering for my knitting world as I was hoping. Oh well.

The good news is that I only have 2 more classes - tonight and next Wed. and I'll have yet another toddler sweater! I'll post pics later this week I promise. It is in Berroco Air which is like knitting with cotton candy.

I really have no need for a toddler sweater and I don't want to give it away. My original plan was to make an adult version but my plans were thwarted. My first class I went in with my bag full of sweater yarn that I have been saving in my stash - the first weeks' homework was to knit the body from the bottom to the armpits on #8 needles (keep in mind my the mother was visiting the same week). After horribly twisting my cast-ons for what felt like about a million times I cut the beginnign of the adult sweater up the side and threw it away! - You can imagine how pissed I was to do that. I decided that smaller is better and changed to a chunkier yarn and decided to make it kid size so that I could stay sane for the duration of this class. Needless to say I never want to work with the green yarn that I origianlly picked for the adult version of the sweater.

I am now doubting that I'll ever actually get to wear a sweater from my own needles - I don't think I am going to ever be toddler size again . . .

  • You should HOPE you'll never be toddler sized instead of lamenting the fact! That would mean that not only were you shrinking but anorexia wouldn't be out the question.
