9 weeks

How much can one person knit in nine weeks?

I’ve decided to give myself a bit of a challenge.  Here’s my list:

4 pairs of plain socks
1 woman’s cardigan
1 hat
1 man’s pullover
3 children’s cardigans
1 baby pullover

I’ve planned out the knitting schedule, and I think I can do it.

Why the hurry?  Well, there’s going to be a bit of a family ‘do’ in nine weeks’ time, and I want to give everyone there a little present.  It’s my version of Christmas – we’ll be into Autumn by then, and people will appreciate receiving something warm.  Plus it will be fun – it will be the first time we’ve all been together for quite a while and it’s always nice to take gifts on an occasion like that.

Nine weeks are two months and one week after all.  If I keep to my schedule, it should get done.

The first couple of garments are reasonably on their way…

She says, hopefully.  Not thinking about the other things not on this list that she also wants to finish knitting…
