Uma Cardigan. When I printed out my pattern, I assigned 30 Day Sweater outline. This proved to be an enormous help, because it broke everything into manageable tasks and also encouraged a little healthy competition not to fall behind.
Another thing I really liked was all of the moral support I got along the way from the Yarn Nation crew and my fellow challenge-takers: the live Sweater Knitting Show every weekday, the virtual knit night each Wednesday evening, and the social media channels (Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). By far, my favorite source of inspiration was searching #30daysweater on Instagram!
If I hadn't been knitting this pattern as part of the challenge, I'm 99% certain I wouldn't be wearing this sweater right now. In fact, I don't think it would be done til January 2014 at the earliest! I'm so glad I signed up, and I'll definitely be using this approach to every sweater I make from now on, whether I'm using the framework to design it myself or making something from another designer!
My second FO was hot off the needles yesterday afternoon in between handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. I love the bright orange color - how seasonally appropriate (it's Baah La Jolla in California Poppy)! It's been great seeing everyone else's color choices for their Scalloped Rib Socks during this KAL, and I'll definitely be sharing everyone's FOs here on my blog soon!
