Well there's just no limit to some folks' audacity! Summoning up all the courage I could muster I decided to take a sweater-knitting class. The instructor vowed I wouldn't be out of my element....but I'm not so sure at this point. However, I have completed the back, except for the neck shaping and will do that tomorrow in class. I can't seem to get the color quite right in this photo, but it's a beautiful jewel toned color called "Emerald City"..quite yummy in "person". It isn't perfect, but as a newbie knitter, I'm pleased to have gotten this far with it without pulling my hair out.....although I'll admit I came close!

Your shaping is PERFECTION, Sweet Mary! And the color is luscious! It's going to look beautiful on you! ALMOST - not QUITE - makes me think about digging my knitting needles out of hiding ... naaaaaw! I think I'll stick to crocheting & just admire YOUR knitting!

Have faith Mary, you're doing great! Just wait -- You will be amazed at how all the little unevennesses straighten themselves out when you block it. BRAVO!!

gosh - that looks good. If I had knitted this it would have had waves on the sides and big holes in the middle. Can't wait to see it finished and modeled!

You must have a lot of patience. Only once did I ever complete a knitting project. Everytime I started a new project I always ended giving up unfinished LOL!
Love the colour and you are doing a good job of it.

Looks like you are having fun with the class. I used to knit quite a lot, but the clay keeps calling me. It looks great.
