Let the swatching begin!

I really am terrible at keeping my blog up to date.  It really is a commitment, and one of the first ones I let go when life gets in the way.
I’m really not going to bore you with my typical “I’m back” post (apparently I’ve neglected this blog once or twice before, for months/years at a time).  Instead, I’m just going to get right to it.
I really haven’t been knitting.  At all.  But recently I’ve had the urge to create something, and thought I’d pick up knitting again.
I stopped at Windy Knitty today and picked up some yarn for a new project:

This is from Debbie Stoller’s Stitch ‘N Bitch Superstar Knitting.  It’s been in my queue for awhile.  When the knitting bug started to bite, I thought this would be the perfect summer sweater.  If summer ever comes… but that’s a different blog post all together.  (Perhaps even a different blog.  I could write for days about the hateful feelings I have toward this winter/spring weather.)
Anyway, I’m starting to swatch.  Actually kinda looking forward to it.  And kinda nervous.  I don’t think I’ve EVER been on a knitting hiatus like this.  But I’m sure muscle memory or whatever will kick in, right?  Like riding a bike?
