Wednesday Observations- NaKniSweMo

There is so much stuff that happens in the knitting community that I’m still finding out about! I suppose I could have assumed that there would be a month dedicated to knitting a sweater.

Sometimes we all need a little opulence, a little oh la la, a little…silk. I present to you, Pont Neuf by Emily Wessel. A seamless knit, raglan sleeve cardigan with a picked up lace panel front.

WIP Monday: Christmas Knits

October marks the beginning of Christmas knits for…three people. Yeah, I’m a selfish knitter. However, each of the gifts is pretty big and requires a lot of time. I certainly won’t be able to start and finish any of these gifts within a week of Christmas Day. No way, no how. So, how am I…
