A huge sigh of relief

After blindly stumbling through what seems like a million internet sites and following link aftre link (generally to not a lot) I find myself at menwhoknit.com  I suddenly feel like I've found home and it full of people as nuts about knitting as me.  I am hoping that my blog proves interesting reading as I develope skills and move onto things more adventurous than scarves.  Is there such a thing as a plain and simple jumper for the brave new knitter?

Is there an alternative?

Firstly can I say what a fantastic site uniting knitters worldwide.  Does anyone know of an alternative yarn to use instead of Rowan Big Wool?  My reason for asking is because I'm a relatively new knitter and am expecting to make many mistakes on my first jumper and the thought of spending £120 ($200 ish) on a first attempt is too frightening!
