No, I'm not getting a convertible, it's a method of knitting garments where you start at the top and work your way down. Traditionally it is done the other way. So far so good, but I haven't come to any changes yet. I chose a fairly simple top on Ravelry, also got a book Modern Top-Down Knitting: Sweaters, Dresses, Skirts & Accessories Inspired by the Techniques of Barbara G. Walker. If it turns out, it will be a gift, so shhhh.
On another knitting note I have set up a Facebook page for a LYS, The Flying Needles. Check them out if you get a chance.
