I actually cast-on a pair of adult socks. (From this book by Ann Budd.)
Wasn't sure I'd ever do that :-)
I also swatched (A small miracle in itself!) for an adult sweater. This one.
I always said I'd probably poke my eyes out with my knitting needles before I'd finish an adult sweater. Guess I'll find out!
And not only that, it's for me.
No one in my immediate family, myself included, owns anything that I knit. It's all been for charity or friends.
Now that I've sorta started something for myself, every time I see a cool new pattern I think, "I'd love that for myself!" And it doesn't matter what it is, either! A scarf, more sweaters, socks, blankets....
If this continues, I'll have to change the name of my blog from "Givin' Knit Away" to "Keepin' It All!"
