National Knit a Sweater Month.
I was just reminded on Ravelry this morning that this is a thing. And since I have been wanting to knit myself a sweater this year, perhaps it’s time to do it.
Initially, I wanted to knit Eaves (shown left). It’s a striped pullover designed by Melissa Wehrle. However, Shellseeker (shown right) designed by Heidi Kirrmaier caught my eye a few weeks ago. It’s also a striped pullover.
They are so similar (stripes, generous necks, minor ribbing).
They also have their differences. Eaves is boxy and knit bottom up. Shellseeker is a shaped raglan, knit top down. I could perfect my short rows with Eaves. I could learn kangaroo pockets with Shellseeker.
Ultimately, this is going to come down to stash yarn. Since I still have not acquired much fingering weight yarn, Shellseeker wins.
Is anyone else crazy enough to knit a sweater for NaKniSweMo?
