I’ve been a major blog slacker. To make up for my slacking and to challenge myself, I have joined NaBloPoMo (aka National Blog Post Month), which means that I will be attempting to post once each day for the entire month of November. You may have heard of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and NaBloPoMo was inspired by it, but as an alternative for those of us who aren’t motivated to write a novel.
Before hearing about NaBloPoMo, I heard about NaNoSweMo (National Sweater Knitting Month - don’t ask me how they came up with that acronym!), which is also taking place in November. I liked the idea, but my current WIP list and plans for Christmas gift knitting don’t really lend themselves to being put on hold for a month in favor of a new project. NaBloPoMo seems like a good alternative, since it will motivate me to finish WIPs and start new projects, and that will give me more stuff to post about.
Since I feel the need to post something project related, I’ll give you a peek at my first Christmas knitting project - mittens for my sister.
This was my first attempt at fair isle knitting, and the work in the photo was later frogged due to gauge issues and restarted with smaller needles. But I’m pretty proud of my attempt at trying a new knitting skill.
More details about the project and its progress will be revealed in November!
