Remember SAT analogies? Y'know,
sweater : novel :: knitting : writing.
Clever Shannon (author of Spin to Knit, among other works) has proclaimed November to be NaKniSweMo, analogous to NaNoWriMo. I've never attempted to write a novel in a month, but knit a sweater in a month? I'm there!
(Close readers will notice there was some community editing of nomenclature. I like to think the current acronym for National Sweater Knitting Month is a witty example of cabling or, if you please, tmesis and chiasmus.)
I was pondering knitting up an old Takhi pattern in Malabrigo Aquarella, but someone – Homeland Security? – would seem to be holding up the shipment. So that's pending sine die.
Happily, there's plenty of
fish : sea :: yarn : stash.
I have a bag of Noro Blossom that's been sitting around, enough (I think) for a quick sweater. As clever Kathy has decided this month is Norovember, this one will be a twofer.
There will be progress pix shortly. In the meantime, here's the gauge swatch.
Amazing to relate, the swatch has almost no curl. And, oh, those Noro stripes!
rhyming : poem :: striping : Noro.
