NaKniSweMo!

So, how crazy am I?  I've got several projects to knit for Christmas, yet I've decided to join in the fun that is NaKniSweMo!  What in the hell is that, you say?  Follow this link, it explains it better than I could.  In short, I have one month to complete my sweater...  But it's going faster than I thought it would(but doesn't every knitter say that at the beginning of a big project).  I've only ever knit one sweater(bigger than a baby sweater that is), and it was for my son.  I've started a few here and there... Mariah, Olive Branch Yoga Hoodie.  The first was a bit complicated, the second too boring.  Think I'll have success with this one... here's a progress pic!

NaKniSweMo Progress

I love the simplicity of the cables.  This is actually the second time I've started... I cast on a smaller size but had my doubts once I was a few rows in so I ripped it and started over.  I've already altered it a bit, shortening the ribbed section to two inches instead of four and a half.  It'll be an adventure, that's for sure!

Here are a few other progress pictures of what's on the needles:

WIP

Finished one of my Mom's socks!

Yes, another giftie

Also finished one of my Brother's fingerless gloves!

Another Holiday Gift

And here's the first of my Sister in Law's socks! I love the color of this yarn and they way it changes gradually, but I'm not terribly fond of the yarn itself... knit and learn!

Yesterday was Halloween and I of course did some sewing for the occasion...

Obi Wan Kenobi

Meet Obi Wan Kenobi!

Obi Wan Kenobi

He had a good time and really loved the costume, and yes, I used a store bought pattern... Simplicity 5840, but I modified it a bit, adding a hood to the tunic and making it a bit longer and more cape like.

Thanks for looking! Craft on all!

You're making great progress! I started mine early, so I don't know if it counts for NaKniSweMo, but I'm going along with it anyway :P
