What I want, though, is to check out some nifty sweater-knitting books to skim through for ideas and advice. If any of you, my trusty readers, have advice on such books, or really nice sweater patterns that you'd like to share, please do.
The Sweater Workshop: Knit Creative, Seam-Free Sweaters on Your Own With Any Yarn by Jacqueline Fee
Knitting from the Top by Barbara G. Walker
Knitting Without Tears : Basic Techniques and Easy-to-Follow Directions for Garments to Fit All Sizes by Elizabeth Zimmerman
I am feeling a tad intimidated at the whole project, but I'm also very excited about it. The yarn is gorgeous and it should be fun to play with. And, as ever, I should remind myself that if it doesn't work out, I can always unravel and start again!
