Confession Day

To my Dear Friend and SockSister Linda,

I do apologize for keeping you in the dark this week..but I wanted to surprise you..
I know we've spoken of taking a sweater class together and there's nothing I'd rather do, but after hearing your stories of all the lovely sweaters you made for your children when they were young and knowing your sweater experience...I could not in good conscience take a class with a Well Seasoned Sweater Maker such as yourself without a bit of experience.

I have to admit..this was not planned..I have witnesses for that..it was purely spur of the moment...I walked into YT on Sat. to visit..and there was another lady there making a sweater...I loved the pattern and was assured it was a very easy 'first sweater'..so that was my secret purchase...and I've been knitting fiercely all week...I now need help with doing the sleeves but I wanted to share with you what has kept me so busy this week. I hope you will forgive me for being unusually 'quiet'...

I will post again once it has sleeves...

Happy Knitting ~~

Dianne, I think Linda is just going to be proud mama proud of you (I know I am) and I'm sure all will be forgiven.....does Linda have a pc?
Sweater is gorgeous, even sleeveless as it is...but it won't take you long to whack a couple of sleeves on that baby.

Dianne, I am so proud of your first sweater! You have really done a lot this week on the knitting!! I should know, because I know where you were on Monday! When I see you this coming Monday I hope to see a completed sweater. You go girl! Looks great!

Fantastic job on your first sweater! The sleeves will be a breeze.
