MARCH SWEATER MADNESS!!

MARCH SWEATER MADNESS!!

Knitting has been a bit slow or non existant these last few months, largely due to being too busy. I have decided that March is the month I will finally cast on a new sweater AND FINISH IT!

In order to keep myself on track I will be running the MARCH SWEATER MADNESS contest. Want to Join Me??

I will carefully select a sweater that has a FREE pattern on the internet. All knitters will have time to be armed and ready to go by March 1st.

On March 1st we will all CAST ON and it will be a race to the finish! The Knitter who is first will win an amazing swag package from The Sweet Sheep!

I know for sure the pattern will be in worsted weight as I am planning on making my sweater out of the Shelridge worsted that has been staring at me for MONTHS!

Let’s knit a sweater before spring slaps us on the butt!

I will be searching for patterns over the next few days…suggestions welcome! The pattern will be a surprise until March 1st, but gauge and yardage required will be given out next week so you can rifle through your stash or buy that yarn you have been coveting.

You DO NOT have to buy yarn from my store to participate…however if there is a colour of shelridge farms that you would like…that I do not have in stock, please let me know and I will order it in for you as I have to order mine too!

I will be happy to start up a blog where participants can have their say….is there someone willing to make a button!?!

At The Sweet Sheep it has been socks all the time…and I certainly cannot say that I will be changing that, but sweaters need their month…and that month is MARCH….WHO’S WITH ME?

Knit-a-longs are fun. And I am up for something not terribly complicated so that it can actually be finished in a month by someone who works a bit.

Now - before that, I have to finish up baby sweaters (on second of five), weave in the ends on four pairs of socks sitting in a felted basket and do the oldest her scarf/stulpen of choice.

Not much, right?
