I went into the weekend with one goal in mind: to finish both sleeves for the sweater. If you remember from Friday’s post, I had about 3-4 inches done on both sleeves going into the weekend. Well, I didn’t quite finish the sleeves, but I got darn close!
The 30 Day Sweater Challenge officially began this week on Tuesday! So far, 4559 people have joined the challenge so far, and I am one of them.
Instead of working on the hat for my friend, I decided to focus on finishing my Ellington sock. I had gotten down to the toe during my lunch hours, and all that was left to finish it up.
After a couple weeks of hard work and a little grief, the monkey is getting ever closer to being complete. I had my doubts, especially after having to redo the scarf, but I’m happy with the results so far. I’m down to just needing the finishing touches.
Normally, when I wake up in the mornings, I sit quietly in the living room and either knit or work on the day’s blog post. Sometimes there’s some scolding of the kittens, especially as they’re now waking me up at 4:45-5:00 a.m. in the morning. There is now an addition to my routine: listening to podcasts.
I’ve done something quite unheard of in this house. I have been monogamous (ish) with a project. The result was amazing progress on the monkey!
Leading into October, I’m trying to wrap up any projects that have a deadline. Luckily, there are now only two: a monkey and a hat. I figured the best place to start would be with the most complicated project.
As part of the blog tour for the 30 Day Sweater, today we have a guest post. Ever wanted to know what it takes to succeed in knitting a great sweater? Me too. Well, the people behind the 30 Day Sweater and the upcoming massive KAL tell us more today.
What does a knitter do when she (or he) has a staycation? Does this person work on current WIPs? Start a new project? Both? Well, this knitter did both, but in varying degrees of success.
October is going to be a really exciting month, and I thought I’d give you a heads-up about it. I’ll be participating in the 30 Day Sweater Challenge, which is aiming to get 5000+ knitters to knit a sweater in October.
