Just a warning for the aspiring knitters: I think I've probably already spent $150 during my three week knitting career. And I really wanted to take Pam's class, but can't justify another $35. I have bought the LTK pattern (which is great, btw), the fern&faerie pattern (still waiting on), spent $23 on vintage patterns (this included around 6 soakers and lots of other baby stuff, too), then bought several needles and other notions, and enough yarn for five or six soakers. It's really lucky that I don't know much about yarn or knitting because I have been trolling the web for yarn like I used to for dipes, but haven't bought any more because I don't know what kind to get.
On the other hand, I love the two I've finished and I'm almost done with a third. I taught myself how to knit and purl on the web and had never made anything before.
Just beware! :LOL
