A couple of years ago, New Stitch A Day developed a 30 Day sweater template and had a 30 day sweater challenge. The concept was completing the seemingly daunting task of knitting a sweater in 30 days! Through doing the challenge what most people discovered was that it wasn’t daunting at all! In fact, it was enjoyable and easily accomplished.
My friend Zylo is continuing the challenge and has thrown the gauntlet. She is doing Sweater September, where the goal is to knit a sweater in the month of September. Now I know we’re 1/3 of the way through the month already, but if you haven’t heard about it or started, there’s still time! You can join her group to do this through this link …
… and have the support and encouragement of everyone doing this little challenge. I’m doing one as well. As a matter of fact, I’m actually doing 3! Yeah, you see, you don’t have to start and finish a sweater all in September. You can use this as a means of turning a UFO into an FO! I have 2 that I started in late August that will be completed in September, and another one that was started a while ago that I’ll finish as well!
You can post pictures in Social Media and use the hashtag #sweaterseptember so we can all see what you’re up to – and pass on the love to you and everyone else!
Here’s my progress on 1 of them …
It would have been done already but I made a HUGE goof. The ribbing on the back is only 8 rows while it’s 10 on the front! I’m grafting in 2 extra rows now and should have it blocked by Saturday! Yeah! I’ll do another post to show how to fix that mistake at another time! 🙂
This is the white version of the pink one that I showed awhile back. That’s will be #2, and I’ll show you #3 when 1 & 2 are finished!
What will you be knitting?
