The End of November

1. NaKniSweMo

Check. (A photo finish complete with still-a-bit-damp and way-too-rushed seaming!)



The pattern for the castle is in Barbara Walker's Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns and the sweater is just a basic drop sweater in about a child's size 10.

2. NaBloPoMo

Check. 30 days--and I finish with a bang (2 posts in one day).


3. National Finish-the-Book-You've-Been-Working-On-Forever Month

Well--almost check. Really really almost. It will be sent off to the press for copy editing in a couple of weeks!


4. Sleep

Not so much.

I love it! I've been looking at that panel since I got the stitch dictioary book (years ago) and never could decide what to do with it...yours is wonderful.

It's beautiful!!! Great job on finishing!

I read through your blog this am when I couldn't sleep and really enjoyed it - especially your beautiful words on the birth of your Son and then to find that your David commented too, brought tears to my eyes! Amazing knitterly family you have! Am looking forward to more of your posts.

Congratulations!!! That's an *amazing* list of accomplishments...I'd settle for half, no, just one - it'd be nice if I'd managed #3 alone, if nothing else. :-P

And that's a beautiful sweater! I've never seen that kind of texture pattern in action before, and I'm really intrigued. Anyway - I'm catching up on your posts, so maybe you already saw this, but it looks like KnitPicks is recalling those cords: http://www.masondixonknitting.com/archives/2006_12.html#001736

Whoa. I can't believe you finished the sweater so quickly! (And before I found a photo of 5 year old me wearing mine, darn it.)

Congrats on everything! You're my hero this week.

That is adorable! I love that the sweater is sand colored so it looks like a sand castle. Great job!!!

Great castle sweater! Now go get some sleep, but check for the pea under your mattress!
