I'm trusting Knitting in Plain English to fill in my knitting knowledge gap. I learned how to crochet from Crocheting in Plain English, so I expect Maggie won't lead me wrong here. She was a knitting teacher and knows how to translate knitter–ese.
So, wow, a full sweater in a week?! Ambitious. Except I plan to make a baby sweater. My first sweater (still in pieces) also was a baby sweater for my now 5–year–old nephew. The fact I plan to make this one wearable is quite impressive.
If you have any questions about knitting, ask away in the comments. I need you guys to quiz me so I can act like I know what I'm doing in my class.
