I have a small knitting purchase to report. I finally bought the current issue of Interweave Knits. I've been eyeing it since it came out, mostly for the lace article, and broke down today. So I got it home and read it cover to cover. Great issue. The lace article is wonderful and will be my right hand for the remainder of the Amazing Lace. And the patterns are great. I would like to make most of them. I'm eyeing the Marseilles pullover - a nice cable sweater. I really want to try my first sweater and have been checking out patterns for months to find a good one. But I keep chickening out. I mean, I've been knitting for less than a year and am definitely not very skilled. So I read patterns and price yarn but then go back to a sock. A sweater is such a big commitment...so many stitches, so much yarn, all those seams. But I really like this sweater. I must get up the courage to try it. Ignore the fact that I've never cabled. I can knit a sweater...I will knit a sweater!
