NaKniSweMo -what?!

That crazy combination of letters either means something to you or you think I just suffered some sort of stroke. Don't worry. I didn't.

NaKniSweMo was thought up by Shannon Okey - maybe you know her as Knit Grrl or the face of Cooperative Press?  I could go into some lengthy explanation of what NaKniSweMo is but you should just go over & read the description on the Rav group.  I'll wait.

So...Cal said she was going to do it and so did cross border bud Natalie who claims to be making TWO! I've decided I can't resist the challenge of knitting something in a month that's not on a deadline for a publication.

Do you want to try it?  Well here's a tiny incentive to get you started.  Free shipping in my shop starting today and going until next Monday if you use the code NAKNISWEMO*.  BUT that's only the start...I want to see pics of WIPs and finished sweaters so, if you upload a finished JDMS sweater pic to my Facebook Group or Rav group - you'll be entered in a drawing to win a gigantic hank of Empire.

Yup, 1280yds of aran weight NYS Rambouillet wool. 

Oh, and I know the "real" NaKniSweMo is supposed to be 50,000 sts but I've never been a stickler for the rules so as long as the sweater is either made from JDMS yarn or from one of my patterns AND started & finished in November it counts.

*again, because of my dislike of strict rules, if you want to order yarn and not use it for NaKniSweMo and still get free shipping, that's okay too :)


  1. WHOOOOOOA that yarn is gorgeous. Too bad I'm waist-deep in Christmas knitting! I was telling Cal, they should do NaKniSweMo some other month, because this is the only time of year I feel guilty making anything for myself...

  2. Well,Cal & I have a crazy sweater making plan and you can join us after the new year if you want!
