So years ago, when I was first reading blogs, I started hearing about this thing called NaNoWriMo, (National Novel Writing Month) where participants try to write a 50,000 word novel in the course of a month (in this case, November). I don't know where I started reading about it, but I know that Rachael of Yarn-A-Go-Go has done it.

It turns out that bloggers are on the bandwagon with NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month), where they pledge to blog, every single day, for a month. So I'm going to try it. No promises that I'll make it - after all, this month includes another business trip and the chaos that is Thanksgiving - but I'm going to try.

So today is my first post for NaBloPoMo. And I don't have a heck of a lot to report. We're gearing up for another crazy day at work tomorrow, so that's occupying most of my brain.

Knitting? Imagine yesterday's picture of the sock toe with a few more stitches added on. I'm done with the contrast toe and ready to start knitting the pattern...but that happened at 10:30 last night, and I decided that attempting to start the pattern at that point was a terrible idea.

I've been contemplating last year, and how we tried to end the year with empty needles. Though I make no such promise this year, I'm hoping to finish a few projects by New Years.
  1. Socks for Grandpa (Christmas gift!)
  2. Rogue. I love this, and want to be able to wear it as a cuddly sweater in January!
  3. Henry. My neck is cold, and I can't wait to wear this to warm up.
Other than that, I'm not going to worry about some of my longer term projects that are still on the needles.

So that's post number 1, only 29 to go!
