NaKniSweMo 2017 is right around the corner
NaKniSweMo is right around the corner. Are you ready? If you’ve never heard of NaKniSweMo, you can read about it in the group on Ravelry. As usual, we’ll be doing our month long series, NaKniSweMo Sweater Workshop, where we take you through the basics of sweater construction.
I haven’t even started looking at patterns, yet. I’ve been working so hard on 12 Weeks of Christmas patterns and samples, and The 2017 “I Love Yarn Day” Community Blanket 24 hour Knitting Marathon extravaganza that I haven’t even thought of knitting anything for myself or for fun, since early spring. And I have so many things in my queue.
Right after The Marathon, I’m going to start Spiral Euphoria a true mobius with switchback twists that make delightful spiral looking chevron things in both directions. It looks like a fun knit that will keep my attention, but not so hard it’s going to keep me from chatting or watching tele while I knit. If you’ve never done a true mobius, starting with the cast on, I’m inviting you to join me on Wednesday evening, October 15, 2017 to learn the mobius cast on and knit this fabulous thing with me.
And since I plan to knit it in Lang’s Mille Colori 200 gm, I’m even more excited about how it’s going to work up. So much delicious color, just when and where I need it most.
But none of that helps me make a decision about what I’m going to knit fir NaKniSweMo. If you remember back that far, I never finished my 2015 sweater. And I didn’t even start one in 2016. So, I’m due, and I want to make it a dusey. (And does anyone know where the word “dusey” came from?)
What do my lovelies think of these? Top to bottom, they are

Love the color work and the shaping.

Love the simple elegance of the shaping and the lace interest on the sleeves.
Khione by Elizabeth Sullivan
Love, love, love the square neckline and the little bit of texture detail.
November is almost upon us and I will be starting a sweater on the first of the month. I’ll have to pick soon. Will you be starting a sweater for NaKniSweMo? Which one do you think you’ll do?
