I’ve been dyeing a lot of yarn (see the Stitch Cleveland Etsy store — some of the superwash merino that’s just brilliant for shawls and socks is pictured at left), and setting up the 2008 Stitch Cleveland crafty club memberships.
NaKniSweMo? Oh, don’t ask. I’m being a very bad role model / instigator. Besides, how can I possibly compete with this gorgeous sweater? Lovely, isn’t it? It makes me want to go knit entrelac now now now now!
Speaking of, did you know the NaKniSweMo group on Ravelry is up to 328 members? From Finland to England, Germany to Canada, South Africa to Australia, and just about everywhere in between — you are a good-looking group of knitters, if I do say so myself. And determined, whether knitting through broken bones or frogged-multiple-times projects… so I salute you, even as I, your fearless moderator, fall behind on my own sweater due to deadlines and other things that put food (and yarn) on my table. Hey, I dyed all that yarn above. Could we count that instead? Or could there be a Fiber Enabler award?
If you’re on Ravelry, be sure to check out the Finished! thread to see everyone’s awesome sweaters. I’ll be posting some here, too.
