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
