No Repeat December Knitters' Challenge

I know most of you don't watch the makeup videos I post here. So a little recap, I'm currently doing a makeup challenge called No Repeat November. The idea is you only get to use a product once then it goes into a box or a bag or whatever and you can't use it again until you've used up everything else in that category. There are no rules. Everyone is free to approach it how they like. I've been doing it for a little over two weeks now and I'm really enjoying it. I'm using things I didn't think I liked and finding that I love them. I'm rediscovering things I had forgotten or neglected.

What, you may be asking, does this have to do with knitting? Well I'm glad you asked!

I am going to do a No Repeat challenge for December. I have 25+ handknit sweaters. Generally I wear the same four or five over and over. I recently went through to reorganize them and found sweaters I had forgotten I knit! So I intend to wear a different sweater each day of December. Once I wear it I will set it aside. I intend on doing the same with shawls, scarves and cowls. Once I wear one I will put it aside. I love to knit. I love the things I make. But sometimes they just sit in plastic bins and get completely ignored. Not this December!

I plan on posting a photo each day to Instagram (I'm rosekimknits) and my twitter (also rosekimknits) each day. I will use the hashtag #norepeatdec. I can post here on the blog to if you'd all prefer it. I might even through in my Facebook page to boot. I would love for you to all join me. Don't fuss if you don't have a month's worth of sweaters. You can just make an effort to wear a different knit each day including socks, mitts, hats, whatever you like. I just want us to all wear and enjoy our knits.

So, are you with me? No Repeat December!
