A new goal- knitting :)

I have to admit, I haven't been inspired by much lately. I know I should be making or painting something, but other things-family, work, home- just seem more important right now.  But....I have recently been inspired by this sweater:

Found here- on Cozy Things, one of my favorite blogs.

I already know the basics of knitting- the knit/purl part of it. But I can only knit things that require straight lines- washcloths, scarves, etc. Boring!! The only thing keeping me from knitting (or crocheting, for that matter) something more interesting is the idea of following a pattern. I hate patterns! But, I really love this sweater, so I want to try it.
Knitting and crocheting (my straight lined items) is a way to keep my hands busy while I'm watching TV or movies. I hate just sitting and watching. I guess it makes me feel a little guilty. Like, "I should be making something right now, not sitting on my butt watching t.v." type of guilt.  I'm not quite sure how the pattern reading will fit in with the t.v. watching, but we'll see. Anywho, I'll keep you posted on the progress!
The first inspiration in weeks! Yay! Hopefully it will lead to more :)
Have a great evening!  Juli
