We stand here on the edge of the Abyss. Before us stretches the unknown void; beside us only our trusty stash. Bulky and hand-dyed, the stash stands ready; and you know that working together, no sweater pattern can outwit us. The famous rallying cry echoes in our ears:
"Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." -- Winston Churchill
Colinette, you have met your match. I will knit Annie as my first sweater; canceled knitting class be damned. I will knit my first sweater -- the Warmest Spoil Me Sweater of Buttery Goodness in the Whole Wide World (TM) -- BY MYSELF.
It's only fitting, since I am also a Knitting Guru, according to this online quiz. Nifty, considering tomorrow is my 3 month Knitiversary.
