Note to Self: READ THE PATTERN FIRST!
However, while knitting on the drive there, I realized my knitting would come to a halt. (again: this is why one must READ the pattern before doing ANYTHING!) halfway along, I realized I would have to bind off a portion of the body, set aside, and begin the sleeves on smaller needles. Of course, I did not pack said smaller needles and extra yarn. I pouted the entire way there... and then Dennis said the inevitable: "At least now you can relax!" I turned to him and gently shouted "Knitting is relaxing!!!!" I couldn't help but think of that one episode of a Knit Picks podcast and chuckled to myself.
Speaking of Knit Picks... my yarn came!!!
