I just started working on my first Hitchhiker by Martina Behm. It's such a fun, easy knit. Yay garter stitch! I'm making it in Crazy Zauberball yarn in a very Autumnal colorway, and I love watching the colors change as I go along. I've been at it for only a few days and I'm halfway finished. I would like to make a few of these to sell in my Etsy shop(when I get around to opening it), but I would have to sell each one for around $100 to make it anything but a time waster.

I look at handknit sweaters alot online. My dream is to have an entire trunk full of them, of course. While looking through the Blarney Woolen Mills site, I saw THIS. Enough Donegal Tweed straight from Ireland to make an entire sweater, for $75. Woo-hoo!
