In which a moment of insanity takes off.

It’s all Susan‘s fault. But yes, Margene and I agreed to her crazy plan to knit 12 sweaters in a year (preferably one sweater a month). Now other crazy people are starting to jump in.

So it’s now official. The National Knit a Sweater a Month Dodecathon*, also known as NaKniSweMoDo.

“Sweater” is used loosely. It doesn’t have to be a long-sleeved pullover or cardigan, it can be a sleeveless top or vest. So the basic rules are to complete 12 adult-sized sweaters or tops in 2009. They must be fully completed and ready to wear by December 31, 2009.

We have a button for anyone who wants to join the insanity:

And a Ravelry Group too.

Let’s go knit!

Dodecathon: (“dough-DECK-uh-thon”) From “dodeca-“, meaning twelve sided and “-athon“, meaning an event of unusual length.

    Have fun. I will participate by either cheering you on or laughing outright, from the sidelines. πŸ™‚

  2. Lani says:

    I’m with Carrie… probably laughing outright more with some cheering mixed in! πŸ˜‰ If I was a faster knitter I would join in, but alas I’m terribly slow!

  3. Chris says:

    Hee hee – you know I’m with Carrie and Lani. πŸ™‚

  5. Anne says:

    I’m going with the people who call this nuts – and since I’m quite loony, I’m going to try to join in too! πŸ™‚

  9. Reve says:

    wow! good luck to all of you. I can barely get it toether to knit one sweater a year, let alone one a month.

  10. You crazy, crazy girls. πŸ˜‰ I just googled this term, because I saw it a couple of times on Ravelry and had no clue what it was supposed to mean. Now I understand why some people created insane amounts of sweaters. πŸ˜€
