I took enough yarn with me down the shore to knit an entire sweater. I told myself “you have one week: get it done.” I knew this was risky, given I would not have my (small but good) library of knitting books on hand as reference, as I was designing my first set-in sleeve. I knew i would have internet access and could easily read great tutorials on armscyes on knitty, and I could use the fantastic armscye calculator, created by my friend Elinor of Exercise Before Knitting’s genius husband. I knew if all else failed I could wing it and it would probably be okay. But instead . . .
Yeah, I didn’t knit a single stitch. Didn’t touch the yarn, didn’t look anything up. I jumped in upon my return and am cranking along—of course, I’m also freaking out about those armscyes. All the references and reading in the world can’t help me i don’t think. I just have to do it!
