meow: dreaming...

i've been sick. it's unpleasant, and i haven't knitted much. my "strawberry cream & chocolate ruffle" scarf is about 25 inches long at the moment--no photos, because that would be boring. instead, i have this for you:

Sockmonkey (i didn't make him. he is just a friend) has been seen snuggling some Elann Peruvian Highland Wool. 8 balls of the oregano he is hugging are impatiently waiting to become a warm garment. i had made the purchase for a double-breasted, hooded, walk-in-the-woods capelet i was dreaming up, but i've decided this yarn doesn't make me feel like wood nymph. rather, my stead-fast, earthy oregano balls are dreaming of becoming a sweater.

i've never knitted a sweater before. i'm nervous, and that compels me to choose my pattern very very very carefully. after searching through countless possibilities, i still don't know what kind of sweater my oregano will be--though my fingers are itching, my yarn impatient, and visions of knitting a sweater are dancing in my head. but how do you choose your very first sweater? i suppose just pick something i like and knit away! hmm.... let me think about that perfect sweater some more. meanwhile, Sockmonkey continues to enjoy his cuddle time... meow

  2. hi A,
