New year, New stash-bust

wildflower0701, originally uploaded by Sajona.

I am knitting from stash this year...this is a sweater for DD made from ancient Hayfield merino 4 ply. Sweater is Wildflower sweater from Lucinda Guy's Handknits for Kids.
Did 2 days of work on it and then discovered I'd placed the intarsia in the wrong place and had to frog back to the border - argh!
I am knitting this to relieve the boredom of boring sock - only half of the second one to do and then I'm only doing ones with some kind of pattern involved as the self patterning basic ones are now too dull for words.

this book has just arrived through my letterbox I'm very excited! Only trouble is I've never knitted more than squares before so as much as I'd love to make jumpers and dresses i'm gonna have to start with mice! When you finish this it would be great to hear your tips for new knitters like me

That's such a lovely sweater - I really must knit it in the next size up for dd!
