Gearing up for NaKniSweMo

I learned from Chocolate Sheep that November is NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater Month). Great. I just happen to have two gift sweaters (cardigans) on my to-knit list, so I am taking this as a kick in the pants to get my rear in gear. One of the sweaters is for Brian, who has outgrown his modified Baby Surprise Jacket but still wants to wear it to church sometimes. He has a birthday coming up, and I have my eye on this pattern in red (his favorite color) with grey stripes (stash yarns) - modified, of course to fit a BIG boy!
Remember this? My dear friend, this little sweetheart's mother, would like a matching cardigan for herself. No problem; I have plenty more of the rose chenille and the side-to-side Sonnet pattern should work well. Now if only I didn't need to sleep - or could knit IN my sleep. Because I also need to keep working on thisand other gift knits for the holidays!

Off to knit while helping Brian with his reading and math at . . .

An entire SWEATER? Um, I'm still trying to figure out what went wrong wtih my first knitted hat. Perhaps I'll just knit a SWEAT.

Boy, you've been busy - I love all your roving! and your pictures of fall are beautiful - doesn't it just seem like it's "brighter" this year?

I'm still waiting to see the pictures of you in that splendid red dress...hint, hint... :-) T.

It's also NaNoWriMo ... National Novel Writing Month. In fact, this is the 10th anniversary. I bet they got the idea from NaNoWriMo, especially since they do the weird spelling thing.

A novel? In a month?? Yikes! I'll stick to sweaters.

And Tina, I'll try to oblige you soon. :-)

Well, you only have to write the novel, and they admit it's not going to be good. That's why NaNoEdMo (National Novel Editing Month) is in the spring!
