well, I put up a post weeks ago about having ordered my yarn and saying that I tend to knit socks on 0 when 2 is called for... so I went out and got size 8 and 9 needles and started with the 8, well, I am up to 9 so I guess you can never tell what gauge will be on what needles until you figure it out!
So I started. My first sweater and all instructions look like a foreign language to me so I am getting that first four inches done of the back THEN I will do one sentence at a time and figure it out. When I try to read too much I get that panicky feeling.
I am on my way!
