I'm going to do it!

Since I received the pattern last week for the child's cardigan I signed up to do a test knit for, I've flip flopped erratically between jumping in feet first and giving up now before my significant fears that it's way too hard are proven to be correct.

But I've finally committed to a decision. I went to the wool shop on Thursday and bought the two circular needles, two sets of dpns and the two stitch holders that I need. Yes, two of each. I told you it was hard and scary and....

I think I just need to get on with it ;-)

Oooh good luck. It's going to be lovely in that charcoal colour but it does sound complicated if it needs all that paraphernalia half of which I've never heard of.

Ah, don the goggles, pull on the floaties and dive on in Mrs. It'll be fine! Just read everything three times first and count some stitches occasionally (says she who always misses at least one crucial bit in any knitting pattern and has to frog three quarters of it)...

I am test knitting the same pattern but am just using straights instead of circs. I love the charcoal color too, just beautiful.

What's the worse that can happen? If it all goes belly up, you can felt the jacket and make some brooches!! Throw away your fear and cast on. I am sure it will all go to plan and once again, you will surprise yourself.

Well if I could understand the knitty language I'm sure I would be feeling scared for you too. As it is, I feel quite confident you'll do a beautiful job!
