Pockets are DONE (except for linings of course, but that’s for later), garter stitch border is DONE, all that’s left is the next few centimeters of stockinette stitch border!
Part of me really can’t believe it.
But again, I don’t want to jump the gun on going into what it’s felt like, over all, to knit this sweater. That’s for later.
What I do want to talk about is what’s going to happen to this blog once this sweater is finished. The entire point of this blog is, after all, to document my first ever attempt at knitting a sweater.
Well, fear not my loyal readers, the end of this sweater will not be the end of this blog!
That being said, we’re going to be taking November very easy. I mentioned previously that I intend to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, and in order to do so I need to have plenty of writing time available.
In the month of November, I’ll only be posting once a week. After November will still be at least once a week, but we shall see.
We’re also going to be going through a bit of a re-branding/update on the site in November. I’m hoping to get the site looking more polished, as well as setting up a new tagline. “One woman’s journey to knit her first sweater as the weather turns” won’t really apply once this big orange beauty is finished.
We are keeping the name, since “Sweater Weather” suits not only my favorite craft, but also my personality. The coziness of that name, I think, will continue to encapsulate what I’ll be posting about.
But what about content, you ask? What am I going to write about, if not knitting this sweater?
All kinds of other knitting things, of course! WIPs, yarn purchases, favorite patterns, new techniques and projects I’ve never done before, cast-ons, FOs, knitting guides, novels that mention knitting (even if it’s just that one reference)!
It’s all fair game.
So, I hope you’ll all stay with me in these last few days as I finish this project, and that you’ll stay with me as I evolve this site as well.
