I recently ordered this sweater pattern.
My intention, you see, is to knit a sweater much like that shown in the photo.
It remains to be seen if I will do anything of the sort.
First, after waiting over a week, I checked my order's status and found that the pattern is back ordered. Fudge. No ETA at this point.
Next, I'll have to find yarn that I enjoy knitting with and could also comfortably wear. Those two things rarely coincide. No way I'll be able to use the Galway yarn the pattern specifies. Nope. So wooly...
And finally I'll have to get over my fear of knitting things that actually require achieving proper gauge.
I have succeeded once before. I suppose I can do it again.
