I knit!

I really do. I've never actually finished anything,lol...but I've knitted a lot, I just usually rip it out or the kids get a hold off it and do it for me. But, I signed up for a class and last night was the first class. It's a beginning sweater class and I'm going to make a sweater for O. I tried to be conservative and I picked a yarn that wasn't way out of control in terms of cost. I only needed 3 skeins which was a good thing. Some of the other ladies are making things that take 7 and 8 skeins of yarn and if you pay $10+/skein that begins to be a pretty pricey sweater. It's funny, when I pick a hobby...I don't ever seem to find something budget friendly do I? Oh well...I'm really excited about it.
I plan to work on it a bunch between now and the next class. Tonight we just talked about our different experiences...everyone has been knitting for 1-3 years so I don't feel like a total newbie. I think I'll be able to finish the sweater by the time the weather is cool enough for her to wear it. Keep an eye out for the finished project pictures
