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.
- Socks for Grandpa (Christmas gift!)
- Rogue. I love this, and want to be able to wear it as a cuddly sweater in January!
- Henry. My neck is cold, and I can't wait to wear this to warm up.
So that's post number 1, only 29 to go!
