I didn't chicken out, I went. Everyone was very nice. The bad part is that it takes me an hour to get there. We won't talk about the hour and a half it took me to get home because I went the wrong way on one road. Oh, why not. I finally stopped at Wendy's to get a bite and ask for directions. I was afraid the kid behind the counter wouldn't know so I asked the people in line ahead of me. Turns out I kept turning around one exit before I would've gotten to where I needed to go. They asked me if I lived on that road (no) and then why I was over in that area (to knit). Turns out the guy's grandmother was a knitter and he still had some of the beautiful things that she had made.
I've got the two front pieces for the cardigan done. I did a temporary seam up one side and tried it on. Though I know that's not a real reliable way to tell, it looks like it's going to fit. I started the sleeves last night (doing both at the same time like I did with the fronts) and am about 2 inches into them. I'm excited about getting everything knit and seamed up so I can tackle the crochet. That's where the real challenge will be. If it turns out really bad, I can always search for a knit edging.
