Afer the debacle of the gray Mountain Man sweater, I decided to scale down to a smaller Zimmerman pattern (the sweater will be back soon - but I need a breather and new needles before trying again). Time for socks! I'm following the pattern in "Knitting Without Tears"
Lovely Fleece Artist yarn and Brittany needles are making for an entirely pleasant knitting experience. If one needs to build up the knitting confidence, this is a recommended way to do it.
