I've been knitting since I was little and I've tried lots and lots of techniques, but there's one thing I've never done because I was terrified. But I'm going for the Ravelympics again this year and there was a sweater I just had to knit. Have you seen Elizabeth Zimmerman's recently found pattern, the Green Sweater? After I read this article, I fell in love with the story and the sweater, but it involved steeks, eek! The one thing I've avoided. But I really want to make it, I even have the yarn. So I swatched and procrastinated. Finally, I made up my mind and I announced it to Mr. Truck and then my Saturday morning knitting group. I was committed. I got everything ready and I read this and this.
I crocheted and cut.
And it worked!
It was so much fun I did it again!
I have conquered my fear, I am now a truly fearless knitter. Bring on the Ravelympics!
