A Sweater and a Novel Update


According to my spreadsheet, I'm about 30% of the way through my Vianne for NaKniSweMo, which has me feeling really good. I'm doing my best to not get lulled into a false sense of security, though- I know I have to keep steady on this to have a chance of actually finishing it this month. The sleeves are almost certainly going to be a challenge, and they're going to be a third of the sweater. Right now I'm almost finished with the waist decreases, and since I'm modifying this to be a hip-length cardigan, I'll get to coast along for a few inches before starting hip increases.

I'm also making good progress on my NaNoWriMo novel! I'm at 13,667 words out of 50k, which puts me just a tad ahead of schedule. I didn't manage to write much over the weekend, but I've been trying to get at least 2k words every day during the week, so I had a bit of a cushion to tide me over. I'm having a lot of fun with both projects, but it's definitely making my November really crazy already, and we're only a week in!
