NaKniSweMo Challenge

NaKniSweMo is short for national (or should it be international?) knit a sweater month.  It was inspired by NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which challenges people to write 50,000 words in November.  Swap words for stitches and you have NaKniSweMo.

I’m not sure if my sweater has the required number of stitches but my challenge for myself is to knit and finish a sweater in November.  Emphasis on finish because its not unusual for me to finish knitting a sweater only for it to languish for longer than I’m willing to admit waiting to be sewn together and blocked.

I’ve stacked the odds in my favour by picking a top down sweater that’s knit in the round.  Seriously, the only thing I have to do is sew up a few inches under the arms and block it.  It shouldn’t be too hard, right?

I’m making Arendal from Drops out of stash yarn; the sadly discontinued Rowan Lima.  Its a gorgeous blend of 84% baby alpaca, 8% merino, 8% nylon and knits up so soft.

So far I’m on track to finish, wish me luck!
