Without Halloween as a usual distraction- I have more time to focus on my other projects at hand... specifically my big blue sweater.
It's starting to look like a real live sweater isn't it? I've got the right front ready to go next, just need to cast on and get knitting... which will hopefully happen after this post. I'm hoping potentially by the end of this week to actually start sewing it up!
Pile 'O Sweater Pieces!
I've even given Maudie some love and have finally turned the heel and begun the foot!
What I haven't done and need to do, is block the Grenada Blanket. I'm slooooooow on that front. I have the blocking board but the motivation hasn't been there. It needs to get there. Come on motivation!
I've decided to make a goal for October in order to motivate myself to a finish. By October 31 I want to be DONE the sweater, the socks AND the blanket. It's ambitious but not unmanageable. It would also free up my brain for November. A lot of people participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November. I'm declaring it NaMiKnitMo- National Mitten Knitting Month! Specifically, I'd like to knit FOUR pairs. I'd really like to go into December feeling indulgent in my knitting. BUT, it means that I have to knit up four mittens prior to that. Anyone want to set their own November Mitten knitting goal and join me!?
As hard as it is to say goodbye to summer, I'm enjoying all of this fall motivation and knitting desire! See you with some finished items (hopefully) soon!
