You Know I'm Going To..........

So, I mentioned that I was thinking about attempting 12 sweaters in 12 months for 2012.  If you've been following this blog for any length of time, you might have noticed that it's a surprisingly short leap from "thinking about insane behavior" to "behaving insanely."  Maybe more of a small hop, really.  12 sweaters in 12 months is crazy, completely idiotic, and likely to have me whining about project monogamy/monotony by mid-February.  Andy yet.............I'm still going to do it.

My one real saving grace is that even I am willing to make it 12 sweaters or shawls, so the long-languishing dem fischer sin fru would count,  as would the current Pi shawl.  They're both mostly done, so I'm thinking the 12-in-12 challenge might be a good way to bribe myself to get them finished.  Then there's the Kauni cardigan, which is fabulous but slow, and which has pretty much been neglected because even "fabulous" sweaters in fingering yarn are a pretty stupid idea when one is trying to rack up 100 or more projects in a year.  There's also the Loden Mist cardigan, which would really be nice to be able to wear by spring.  So, I'd be starting with 4 WIPS, which would qualify as a head start, so I wouldn't even need to finish a full sweater each month.  Easy, right?
