waterfall of thoughts
heart into typing fingers
Before I start today’s post, I (•ˇ‿ˇ•)-→ wanted to say thank you for your lovely reactions to all of those cards I had created, for your comments during my trifecta of posts yesterday for the read-a-thon, and for drooling along with me on the new oatmeal cookie recipe I tried out. Your sweet support is like rays of sunshine that travel far to my window and bathe me in warmth. *bows down in gratitude*
After my Ravellenic beanie was completed, I haven’t started anything new. I know I had teased you in the last YOP1617 post with those happy pops of color for the top, but I’ve decided to wait on casting on.
November is known as NaKniSweMo or National Knit a Sweater Month. It is modeled after NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month where in the month of November writers write a 50,000 worded novel. Following along the same lines, knitters are encouraged to knit a 50K stitched sweater.
Last year I failed miserably. I had probably started too late on that Tin Can Knits cardigan. This year I decided to link YOP and NaKniSweMo together for the month of November. While the pattern is called From Another Place Crop Top, it is considered a sweater. I don’t know if I’ll have 50,000 stitches to qualify for prizes, but that’s okay. I’d like to knit along for the spirit of the meme and to have another garment for myself.
During one of Jellybean’s hip hop classes, I was able to finish up the honey yarn – Cascade Yarns Highland Duo. I started knitting with the deep purple, Plymouth Yarns Worsted Merino Superwash, but I didn’t like the gauge of the nine rows. So…ribbit…
I will be going up to an Addi Turbo size 8 (5 mm) circular needle from the size 7 that was used for the honey section.
I’m really excited as this is the last part of my scarf! I want to cast on a smaller project since November isn’t quite here yet but I’m going to finish up this project first.
Have a relaxing Sunday. And I’m off!
