This sweater was my NaKniSweMo project for this year. The goal was to start and finish knitting a sweater within the month of November, to coincide with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). The novel goal is 50,000 words. The sweater goal is a sweater, although I’m sure I did knit 50,000 stitches in this project. I did make some alterations, such as lengthening both the body and the arms with an additional increase. I like my sweaters a little longer than most designers do, apparently. Also, most obviously, I substituted Silky Wool For Rowan Felted Tweed. I’m pretty happy with the result. I’ve finally managed to make a sweater that fits! Now to find buttons…

And I’ve started the Tilted Duster for my sister. Boy, is that Peruvia some soft and lovely yarn.

  1. Hey, I was just browsing the “military knitters” web ring and happened on your page. Thought I’d drop you a line. That sweater is lovely! I can’t believe you did it in a month!

    Are you still in Heildelberg?
