Last Tuesday night at SnB Susan threw down the gauntlet. "I'm going to knit 12 sweaters next year. Who's in?" CherylS and I thought that sounded very doable as we've both have knit quite a few sweaters this year. Everyone else thought we were crazy, but we're seriously thinking about going for it, anyway. It will be the "Me, Me, Me, ME KAL" as all the sweaters we knit will be for ourselves (which isn't unusual). As much as possible we'll work from stash without making it mandatory. While I don't have enough yarn to knit 12 sweaters, I could get a good start with what's on hand.
I'm in a bit of a dilemma, however, concerning Jadis and the Gray Mist Bohus. There is NO way to finished both (and Plan B) by the end of the year. I WANT Jadis now, want to knit and then wear her, and the Bohus will be too much sweater to knit in one months time (at least I think it will be too much). Do I knit Jadis now or put it off and make her the first sweater of 2009? (This would be very difficult.) Do I start Bohus now and, along with Plan B, work like hell to finish before years end? Do I try to knit all three? There's a load of knitting time coming up with the long Thanksgiving weekend and I could use it to my advantage. Couldn't I?!?!
Just for kicks 'n giggles here's the yarn list in no particular order:
No ideas as yet yarns
Silky Wool (Red)
Notlwonk Sport – (Gray) I'd love to knit with this yarn soon
Elann Peruvian Quecha - (Red - I'm not fond of this yarn, but it could make a nice cardigan)
Making a list of sweaters does not mean this is what I'll be knitting. It's only a factual reference and possible guide. The list of sweaters I'd like to knit is longer than this list and I could/will be persuaded (by yarn or pattern) to change my mind at anytime.
Or give up altogether.
The weekend will be spend knitting and pondering (and spinning). Have a good one!
