Thank you for your comment! I was like you: overwhelmed by what I considered a huge task, a big project with many possibilities to go wrong and totally ruin it... I needed a different mind-set, just as with quitting smoking. Smile and start thinking of the GOOD feelings that you will soon have. Break up the project in your mind, and realize that you will learn many interesting new tips and tricks. Each one will help you succeed, and each one will help build confidence. Trust yourself. What is more: you will have a life-lesson after finishing this as well. You learn how to trust yourself. One big gift is knitting-knowledge, the second gift is your first bolero, the greatest gift is the fact that you can be so proud of yourself, just by continuing step after step! Trust yourself. Soon, somebody else will write her wishes after seeing YOUR first bolero! And then, like me, you can write about the lesson that you learned yourself.
