So I admit that I’m a wee bit obsessed with this knitting thing. (Ditto the spinning thing.) What my mother once described as a phase I’d grow out of, I haven’t. In fact I’ve burrowed in even more.
I spend a large amount of time knitting. A large amount as in a few hours each day. It’s a bit like breathing to me.
This year a group on Ravelry was started to encourage shawl knitting in 2010. They called it “10 Shawls in 2010.” I enthusiastically joined and at last count I have shawls #14 and #15 on the needles.
A month or two ago, I started thinking about the end of the year, and the start of 2011 and what I wanted to accomplish in 2011. I surveyed my stash, and realized that I had an embarrassingly large number of sweater quantities of yarn. The answer was elementary (my dear Watson). I would knit sweaters.
Thinking Knowing everyone would think I was crazy, I started telling selected individuals my plan. And to my surprise people wanted to join me. So I did it. I took the plunge and started a group. I named it, most originally, “11 Sweaters in 2011.” If you want to join us – to participate, to watch, to cheerlead, or to chat, all are welcome. You can find us here.
