Success!!! #NaKniSweMo

Dee: I did it!  From start to finish I knit an entire sweater in a single month!  On November 1st,  I cast on and I finished the button band on November 22nd.  I owe a big THANK YOU to whomever started the NaKniSweMo challenge.   I found it completely inspiring and I now have a beautiful and warm sweater to carry me through the cold winter weather.

Knitting with the Peace Fleece was a joy except for a few knots within the skein.  Once I smoothed those over and I knit away happily.  The great thing about knitting with woolens is that there are not so many ends to weave in.  Those who know me understand that I rarely weave in my ends when I knit multicolored stranded hats.  All those multiple color changes….please!  Wool doesn’t really worm it’s way out so I trim up the inside and forget about it.  It should be noted that I did weave in my sweater ends though.

What I enjoyed about this knit was that I had all of the ingredients on hand right down to the buttons.  I highly recommend Knitting Pure and Simple patterns for a challenge like this as it just kept the process moving so smoothly.

I also finished my Noro Veil Stitch Cowl this month.  It was my take along project with no end date in mind.  I just knit on it when I was left waiting for appointments, oil changes, lunch times, etc.

So what’s next?  Lots of hats, that’s for sure and a little surprise I’ll show you later.  Until that time…Happy Knitting y’all!
