NaKniSweMo = No Way José

November 29th, 2013 § 0 comments

In my last blog post, I was all excited about NaKniSweMo and getting this nephew #2 sweater done.  So what happened?  Well, Mexico happened actually.  I went to Sayulita, Mexico, for 8 days as an assistant to my dance instructor.  The event was great and I worked & danced my butt off but didn’t get a whole lot of knitting done because I was too darn busy.  And I was rarely sitting in one place for more than 20 minutes.  I also had a hard time wanting to knit with wool in 30+ Celsius weather.  And airplane seats are the least comfy contraptions in history to sit in, let alone knit in for 4 hours.  Or maybe I’m just making excuses.  Whatever.  Here’s a pic of me dancing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on November 21, 2013.  Hard to believe it was only a week ago!

Anyways, here’s as far as I got in the month of November (excusing that there is still 1 day left, of course.  Hey, miracles do happen ):

That is the body of the sweater plus about half of a first sleeve done.  I have a cold right now, so I’m planning on staying home and knitting tonight to catch up.  Would be great to have the sleeves joined on Sunday by the time my knitting group meeting happens. 

I won’t lie, I’m starting to panic a bit about my C-day knitting.  I still have another nephew sweater (#3, and a cardigan actually), a hat, and a Bodum-cozy to knit before the big day, plus perhaps a quickie cowl present.  So yah, panicking! 

I’ve also decided that come the new year, I’m going to knit for myself for awhile.  I want to make myself socks out of the gorgeous plum sock yarn I got at Knit City and finally finish that darn lace shawl I started back in the summer.  Signing off for now…
