Allow me to present to you The 36 Hour Sweater!
Knit from: Noro Kureyon, color 170. 6 skeins
Knit with: 2 size 9 addi turbos, 24"
Time to knit: 36 hours, one X-files marathon, one knitting birthday party at The Point, one viewing each of In Her Shoes, Heros, Rome and Extras.
I used Barbara Walker's book, Knitting from the Top to create the guidelines for 36. I say "guidelines" because there's not really a pattern. Those of you who are familiar with Barbara Walker will know what I'm saying. She gives you a basic formula and then talks you through creating your own unique sweater, from the types of increases to do (yarn-overs) to the neckline (v-neck). There is nothing left wanting. I highly, highly recommend it.
(Needleworks Inc. is celebrating it's 5,000 view! Yay! I know I'm no Yarn Harlot, but that sounds like a lot to my ears.)
