Today…

…I am a ‘joiner’.  ;o)  RR and I are joining the rest of the country at the voting booth (it’s RR’s first time voting *evah* but sssshhh don’t tell him I told you, he’s a bit sensitive about it *grin*).

…and…

I am joining in with the NaKniSweMo KAL.  The sweater I will be knitting this month is the St. Patrick sweater from A Fine Fleece, the yarn I am using is Wild Apple Hill purchased at Rhinebeck this year in the colorway ‘Midnight’:

Beginnings of St. Patrick

I am knitting the body in the round which is a mod from the pattern.  I plan on adding a seam stitch on each side of the body that I will drop and pick up a la EZ to make the sides feel a bit sturdier.

I’m kind of behind schedule since I’d like to be further along but I think I might be able to finish on time.  I’m looking forward to wearing this sweater in December when i’m too cheap to turn up the heat during the day.  ;op

  1. Alas, I am not a joiner. *And* I am not voting (!!!! – something to do with not being American). My first 8 days of November are consumed by a craft faire (sic) and I must make stupid little things for others to wear or to full (and felt). The upside? I may actually sell something! 8-)
    Sweater looks great – yay you! You can do it! And yay for voting.

  2. I chose the NaBloPoMo route. Yours is more productive but I’m thinking your hands are going to hurt more than mine, too.

    It’s a pretty sweater and you’re a fast knitter. Go Jess GO!

    (See how I didn’t say anything about RR? You don’t want to scare them back into their holes. ;-) )

  3. Ya know, my husband voted for only the second time in his life. He has turned from a man who six months ago couldn’t remember if he was a Dem or a Rep to an outspoken political analyst with full understanding of the most pressing national issues of the day. He woke me up Tuesday night so I could listen to Obama’s acceptance speech with him.

    It’s very interesting to see a guy use the Internet for cnn.com and not, you know.
