That’s 3,264 stitches short of a valid NaKniSweMo entry. I know because I finally calculated it out:


Oh well. I figure designing the sweater myself and sewing in all my extra intarsia ends counts for at least 5000 stitches. And it’s not like I’m trying to win prizes. I’m just happy to have finished my cardigan.


Notice the bags around my very red eyes. This is what happens when you get a head cold on top of three different deadlines. It was only by the grace of Sudafed that I was able to finish this sweater, write an article for Knitscene, and submit two full-length plays for production by today.

Phew! Now I’m off to watch TV and do nothing productive for tonight. Tomorrow, I get back on the writing and designing horse.
