NaKniSweMo Day 2 (And Other Things)

National Knit a Sweater Month began yesterday, and I did so much as to cast on and knit an inch before calling it a night.  A weird allergic reaction caused me to spend the evening in discomfort and day 2 dawned with me feeling worn and super sensitive to everything.  Today was my first day completely free of obligation – no work, no school, nothing.  I had wanted to spend it exploring, and instead spent it watching tv reruns and knitting.  I must admit though, it was relieving to not think of circus or dance for a little while.

I ended up choosing Stephen West’s Enchanted Mesa design before of it’s stash busting qualities.  I had a selection of yarn selected for the pattern, and after the first short row section I nixed my original plans and grabbed different yarn from the stash.  This new option is much more colorful and fun to knit.
