To write or to knit, that is the question. A least the question that sits before me this weekend.
November is both National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) (writers attempt to write 50,000 words of a novel in 30 days) and National Knit a Sweater in a Month (NoKniSweMo) (knitters attempt to start and finish a sweater during the month of November). Both are near and dear to my heart, but, alas, I cannot do both and must choose.
That being said, I have never attempted NaKniSweMo. I have a couple of other projects that I either need to finish this weekend or set aside for a month in order to do this. I think my husband might divorce me if I don't get his sweater finished (well, maybe that is harsh, but he certainly will pout a lot). I don't have much left to knit on the sweater, but I have to block it, seam it and sew in the zipper. On the other hand, I have a sweater pattern and all the yarn to knit a sweater that I have wanted for myself for a couple of years. I could spend the rest of today and part of tomorrow finishing the husband's sweater and try to fit in time to finish it off during the month. Maybe use that time as a little break from my sweater.
Both tasks are monumental. Both tasks, while a bit evil, are a lot of fun. If I can complete either one it will be a big accomplishment.
