I’m one of those people who gets annoyed at seeing Christmas decorations come out right after Halloween. I like my holidays low key and in discrete, small chunks.
But uncharacteristically, I’m getting excited about a holiday early this year. A knitting holiday — NAKNISWEMO: National Knit a Sweater Month.
It all started when the Brooklyn Tweed Fall 2016 collection came out earlier this week. I am in love with the men’s sweaters in this collection. Specifically:
A gloriously cabled body and simple sleeves. A little challenge. But the sleeves give me a bit of a break with something relatively easy. Those look like saddle shoulders. I really enjoy sewing together sweaters with this kind of shoulder. Much easier than set-in sleeves.
This one has diamond cables that look like so much fun to knit, combined with an all-over texture that extends down the sleeves. This one features drop shoulders, so once again I would get out of doing a set-in sleeve (yay!).
One of these two sweaters is definitely going to be my NaKniSweMo2016 project. I just can’t choose which one. I have a month and a half to figure it out and acquire my yarn.
Any one else want to start celebrating/obsessing early with me?
