Pushing the Envelope

Kate calls me crazy. All right, a few people do, with regards to knitting. I've taken Knitting Daily's "Knit Fearlessly" one step further. I knit dangerously. Not "poking people's eyes out with knitting needles" dangerously, but "knitting by the seat of my pants and without a net" dangerously.

This project even has me questioning my sanity. Having never made a cardigan or sweater in my knitting career, I chose this to be my introduction to the art.


Fair-Isle? Check. (or Faux-Isle, depending on how orthodox you are.)
Garment shaping? Check.
Set-in sleeves? Check.
Button bands? Check.
Complicated charting? Check.
Multiple steeks? Check.

My, my, won't this be a learning experience?!

It's madness I tell you, simply madness! And I am loving it!

The saying "Go Big or Go Home" comes to mind when I see that project. No sense in doing anything halfway is there??
