Sweater in November?

So, I’ve often followed the NaKniSweMo progress the past 2 years and thought about it. Somehow I never got it together to knit along. Well this year, the stars aligned and I seem to be well on my way to knitting a sweater this November. I have yet to calculate if it’s 50,000 stitches, but I’m knitting it anyway.

I started this on November 1st and have found it a lot of fun to knit. It’s Tang, from Wendy Bernard’s Custom Knits. I picked the book up at Rhinebeck. The yarn is Cascade’s Rustic, a wool and linen blend that I’m finding a really nice knit.

I’m a little farther than this photo:
Purple Tang

It’s a fun little knit. I don’t know if Wendy named it after the Astronaut drink, but I have to admit it was what I first thought of when I saw the pattern name. Therefore, when I found the perfect purple yarn, all I can think of is Grape Tang. I’ll have to check to see if that was ever a flavor option.

  1. Very cool, and what a pretty color! :) I get so absorbed in NaNoWriMo that I forget about NaKniSweMo every year. I should try to do both next year, lol. Think my head would explode? ;)

  2. I have that book as well. Lovely pattern and your purple is great for it!! Can’t wait to see it finished!

  3. Purple is the new black me thinks. Such an underrated color. Can’t wait to see your finished sweater.

  4. It’s a great color! I hope you managed to finish in time!
