No one will have a sweater like mine (and I am being very generous when I say this because, perhaps, no one will WANT a sweater like mine);
I would pay much more for a hand-knit, fine wool sweater if purchased retail (the retail transaction, however, would be much more efficient);
The process of knitting actually calms me down (the stress of my self-imposed deadline may kill me);
I am perfecting a craft, a knitting apprentice of sorts (thank goodness I did not choose to dabble in electricity);
And finally, however speedy the retail transaction, I will be so pleased with my hand-knit garment and
I am now newly inspired (I think). I post a picture of my progress so far. What you see is the beginning of the back.
