You are hilarious. You're audacity and chutzpah when it comes to starting projects is admirable.
Please note: I have started knitting in threes again. You'll easily see my mistakes take form in these two posts, which makes me chuckle at my lack of knitting knowledge. I thought I could eye-ball a very small ball of yarn and decide there was enough to knit an entire sweater. Hah even if it is a baby sweater! I did it again, until finally I remembered that part in a pattern that mentions required yardage. Which only meant, I had to immediately find a yarn store in Charlotte and buy some new supplies. What a delightful chore.
Soon, I found myself lakeside happily knitting away and chatting with old friends.
