forming a plan of attack
ok, so i have read the pattern about 75 times, now, and i am NEARLY ready to go yarn shopping. this is my first knit-along, and i am still something of a newbie, so expect many questions and a ton of screaming from me. :)
i think i am going to copy what wendy did and make a top rather than a dress. and wendy, if i am looking at girlfriend's top correctly, you did a plain cast-on rather than the picot one, yes? i think that plainer top is what i will do as well--seems like less frilly is maybe better for something to wear with jeans. (and of course, i am terrified of the picot cast-on, too, but we won't talk about that...)
so that leaves me with needing to learn to use a cable needle, beading, and crocheting. whoo hoo! totally excited to get started, although realistically, i may not get anywhere till this weekend. trying to show a modicum of self dicipline and finish up a baby blanket before i start this one, but i am not very patient, so we'll see.
thanks for letting me join up kind of late, carole!
