Dad’s Sweater Update

There has NaKniSweMo action in my house. It’s slow, and I know I’m not going to finish anything this month, but NaKniSweMo has been the motivator I’ve needed to get cracking.

I have actually been knitting on my dad’s sweater. There’s proof! I’ve knit about 1 1/2 inches of the pattern part, and I’m pleased with how it’s turning out. Each row takes about 10- 15 minutes to knit, so I’ve been saving it for knit night when I have a block of knitting time. I plan on taking this with me when I go down to see my parents for Thanksgiving; hopefully I’ll have more done so Dad can get more of an idea of how it’s going to look. I’m tempted to start the sleeves, but I want to see how far I can get in the patterned part with one ball, just for kicks.

    I’m sure you will be glad when you know how much one skein will do. It will be a really nice sweater.

    One lucky dad there! (Wait–I’ve never knitted MY dad a sweater, come to think of it…)
