November Is For . . .
Rebecca tells me that November is for sweaters. And I think she's a smart woman. And even if I'm in no mood to start a new sweater, my Denim Aran is crying out pitifully for attention. And I like that sweater. It's full of fun cabley goodness. And I really want to wear it.
But it's the little projects that are captivating me now. Can you really stand yet another fair isle (or, more accurately, stranded colorwork) in-progress photos? Because they'll be coming . . . all month long . . .
I think my compromise to this whole problem is to knit a multi-colored sweater in November. The Ladybug Sweater (visible progress demonstrated here) is a baby sweater, true (well, I'm making the 24 mo size, so not SO baby). But it's stranded in fingering weight yarn on US2s. I'm pretty sure there are at least 50,000 stitches in this, at 219 stitches per row. If I can do this NaKniSweMo and the UFO Resurrection at the same time, well, I'll be golden.
On top of which I am seriously thinking of NaBloPoMo. Today is day 1, after all.
And A Contest
In other exciting news, November is my blogiversary month. I did absolutely nothing last year to mark the occasion, so this year I'm determined to have a good time. Starting today. Tell me what November is for, and you could win some sock yarn. Contest ends Sunday November 4th at midnight Pacific Standard Time (although, if you get confused by the time change, I'll probably be lenient . . .)
