Originally, I was going to follow the recipe found in the 30-Day Sweater eBook (available here), but I had a hard time deciding what to do - did I want to do some colorwork? What about cables or some sort of stitch pattern? Did I really have time to figure all of this out, even with the easy-to-use formula provided in the eBook? Probably, but I must admit that I am kind of lazy when it comes to sweater-knitting: I'll wing it for just about any other project, but for sweaters, I prefer to use existing patterns. I know that I should step outside my comfort zone this time, but there is just too much happening this month and I'm worried I won't finish my project in 30 days if I bite off more than I can chew!
