Tonight I start my NaKniSweMo sweater. The goal: Knit a sweater in a month ~50,000 stitches. (Stop laughing at me).
Well, that is the question. I was going to do Amused using my lovely Briar Rose Abundance yarn from a few Rhinebecks ago. I started it last month, have knit about 20 rows and it would be a great sweater to work on this month. But, I'm not feeling the love. Both the yarn and pattern are lovely, but not together. So that's out for now.
What I really want is a sweater I can wear to work. And that's a fingering weight cardigan. I also have some light fingering weight Colourmart cashmere in my stash and really, it should be a sweater. So I'm thinking Walnus (Ravelry link). Nice shaping, simple and work appropriate.
And since it's an 800 metre sweater, that seems rather doable. (Stop laughing at me).
I'm also tempted by the Carnaby skirt (I love skirts).

I have some brown tweed in the stash that would make a substantial skirt. I don't think it will fulfill the 50k stitch goal, but I'm sure I can fill in with some other knitting.
Tonight I swatch for the cardi. If it works, that'll be the sweater. Hopefully I decide on something since the clock is ticking!
Maybe I'll do both. (Stop laughing at me).
