First Day of NaBloPoMo 2017 and Finished Knitting the Neck Edging on the Sweater

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I had a good Halloween yesterday, hope you did too! I made pumpkin pie that did not turn out so well, my boyfriend and I watched episodes 3 and 4 of the first season of Stranger Things. I am hooked! it is so good, I did not watch it for quite awhile even when there was so much hype about it. Recently season 2 came out, so we will have more to watch when we are done.

I have finished the neck edging of the 3timesChic sweater. I like how it gives the neckline more definition. I will be posting photos of the finished sweater tomorrow. I am so excited to be done the sweater. I started last December and have been working on knitting the pieces, blocking them, sewing them together, and then knitting the neck edging. It has been such a good first sweater knitting experience and I will talk about my experience more in tomorrow's post. If you would like to read more about my journey knitting the sweater, please click here to see all the posts on knitting the sweater.

I have made some progress in my tangled jumble of yarn today and was relieved to read that some of you have difficulties with this as well. I hope that in the future the hanks don't get as tangled up!

I will also have to start knitting the second Christmas stocking soon because Christmas is definitely well on its way now, only 54 days away now. I need to get some supplies soon to start really knitting Christmas gifts for family and friends. November is a fun and busy month because I really get into knitting gifts for Christmas and decorating and preparing. I will most likely be posting a Michael's haul next week once I buy all the yarn I need for gifts.

I found out about National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) when I visited AsKatKnit's blog last night. It is a month long link up with other bloggers and you have to post every day for the month of November. This could be a challenge, but that it what makes it exciting to me. I always think to myself that I would like to post more on the blog, and this will motivate me to post daily so I can share more posts and connect with other bloggers in the link up.
