So I had this great idea after seeing this hashtag on Instagram that I would knit a sweater this month.  I cast on for my hubbys Christmas sweater and my intention was to finish it before the end of November  anyway.
I have knit this sweater before.  Once in baby size and once in my size.
Both times I completed the sweater in under a month.  How difficult could this be?  It should be a lay down. I should be at the sleeves already according to my plan.  But I'm not.
There's one thing I forgot about.  The time change.  By the time I sit down to knit at night I am falling asleep with the needles in my hands.  Work has been crazy with deadlines so I haven't been able to take lunch lately.

I'm still getting it done.

I am still having a hard time going off day light savings time too, and this is the one I like! I went to bed last night at 9:30, unheard of for me.
Good luck with the sweater, you can do it!

That's a very cute sweater, and I'm sure you'll finish it on time. I know what you mean about the time change. Add that to the sun going down earlier, too, and I'm falling asleep around 8pm. I think it's something like jet lag. HA!

See? Just another reason to hate the time change!

The time change is playing havoc with me this year as well. I find myself falling asleep in the recliner with my knitting, and waking up earlier too.

I love the yarn you are using for hubby's sweater. Pat won't let me knit him one. :(

Love the yarn you're using. You can finish it!

Love the yarn and colour, everybody seems to be knitting sweaters. I really want to cast on my first ever adult sweater, soon. I have the yarn, I just need to find the perfect pattern, now. Have a good week. Deb x
