Should I?

I am seriously rethinking doing Mariah. I like the sweater, but I think I am trying to move away from things that resemble things I wore in high school and college--as comfortable as they are! I was thinking about using the Patons for a sweater in the round...I am learning all those fun techniques...So,




Thing a-long


Some of you are not sure what "The Thing" is, so I pulled this from the book:
"The Sampler [aka 'Thing'] is your opportunity to experience the whys, the wheres, and the whens of knitting a sweater. As you work from stitch to stitch exploring the more obvious how-to’s, this underlying focus becomes apparent; reason emerges as the key to a perfectly constructed sweater. Combine this perspective with your own wits, wisdom, and natural flair, and you’ll have the makings of many a variation. And varied they will be, for timidity and hesitation will be gone Proudly, and without a second thought, you’ll be adding a pocket here, a bit of lace there. This new “nothing-to-it” attitude will spark your enthusiasm for knitting."
~Jacqueline Fee, The Sweater Workshop

I have learned quite a few techniques from doing this sampler. Things I probably wouldn't have tried in a sweater if I had never done them before. Someone left me a note yesterday that they are doing the sampler, too...who are you? You forgot to leave your name and I can't send you a shout-out if I don't know who you are. Aside: Maybe a good reason to rethink Blogger...

I think that if you're having 2nd thoughts about Mariah you should wait to knit it. You might work on something else in the meantime and go back to it later if you really like it.
