Thanks to this post in my blog feed yesterday, my head is already in November, planning to knit a sweater. Sure, according to Ravelry I technically have EIGHT WIPs, but I’m not going to let that stop me from fantasizing. I really thought I would have been working on Blank Canvas by now, but since I had to wait on the yarn and I had yarn for Oshima immediately, Oshima was first. I could do it for NaKniSweMo, but I think I should do something with a bit more panache. I will undoubtedly make Blank Canvas this winter, because I always have a plain stockinette project on the needles, but it will probably not serve as my yearly sweater knitting challenge piece.

I’m thinking that Nanook fits the bill. I already have plenty of yarn for it. I’m thinking this lovely lavender Cascade 220:nakniswemo

I was considering it for Oshima, and swatched a bit, but the dark purple tweed won me over in the end. There are so many gorgeous finished projects for Nanook on Ravelry. It seems flattering on many body types. I’m not sure if I’ll go for the S or M1 size. I can make either with the six skeins I have. Maybe I’ll do the larger chest size and narrow the arms if necessary.

In the meantime, I have at least 2 sneaky projects to finish before November to devote plenty of deserved attention to a new sweater, and I have another sneaky project that should be worked on as much as possible during November when I can. I hate keeping my mouth shut about fun knitting!
