Chances are, you've probably heard of NaNoWriMo (a.k.a. National Novel-Writing Month). Each November, aspiring writers (or non-writers) try to churn out a 50,000 word novel from start to finish. Not to be outdone, the knitters have established their own November challenge, NaKniSweMo (a.k.a. National Sweater Knitting Month).

The challenge? Knit a 50,000 stitch sweater in the month of November.

To quote the organizer:

Yes, the stitch count thing is crazy, but I think I can say with confidence that most sweaters out there are at least that, or more.

NaKniSweMo is hosted by Shannon a.k.a. KnitGrrl. If you want to join, comment on her blog or join the Ravelry Group. Also, check her blog in December - there'll be pictures of the completed projects.
