I have made the decision to partake in National Knit a Sweater Month (nakniswemo) this year. The pattern has been chosen, the yarn bought, and the skiens rolled! What are the rules you say? Well check them out here on Ravelry. One of the biggest rules is that your sweater must be 50,000 stictches. Nope you didn’t read that wrong. I am pretty sure my chosen sweater (Minette by Andi Sutterland) will make the cut. I should note that I plan on making the sweater an inch or two longer so that it will sit at my hips. I can’t wait to get started, but another rule is the kickoff needs to be November 1st. The anticipation is killing me! I already created a swatch so that I can get right into on Saturday. What yarn you say!? I selected Persimmon, which is a Cascade 220 superwash wool in DK weight. The perfect fall color. Check back for more progress!
