This may be a strange way to talk about a highlighter or the start of November but stick with me for a minute. The beginning of November for a lot of people means the start of NaNoWriMo. For many knitters, myself included, its the start of NaKniSweMo – National Knit-a-Sweater-in-a-Month. This is my seventh year participating and hopefully my seventh successful completion. I’ve had some fumbles over the years but there are seven well-loved sweaters in my closet thanks to NaKniSweMo so I’m willing to compete myself to the challenge again this year. No, its probably not as hard as writing a whole novel in a month but its good fun and a challenge just the same.
And for me, it means that I need a good highlighter to notate my pattern and highlight the specific size I’m knitting. That’s where Zebra Kirarich Glitter Highlighter in yellow ($2.05 each) comes into the picture. I ordered it awhile ago and its become my go-to highlighter. Why? It’s glittery!!!! Its not so glittery as to be distracting. But I know its glittery. It will catch the light and sparkle and just sort of brighten my day. My highlighting is all of a sudden kissed by unicorns. Its totally ridiculous and twee but I’ve been having a rough few weeks so if glitter makes me happy, so be it.
The Kirarich Glitter Highlighters are also available in blue, pink, orange, purple and green. There’s a five pack set with all colors for $10 if you need ALL THE GLITTER or a smaller 3-pack with just the yellow, pink and green if you have a little self- control.

Cool product. I hope you are feeling better.
Ana, may NaKniSweMo provide you with all the therapeutic benefits of knitting and cure your headaches.
I love my glitter highlighters!!!!
Every post, I love your blog more! I just added a glitter highlighter to my Jetpens cart and I’m totally curious what sweater you’re knitting this time. Maybe next year I’ll join in on NaKniSweMo with an actual sweater, right now I’m just hoping to knit every day for the month!
Thanks so much, Kerry! I’m working on the Emelie cardigan. You can follow my progress on Ravelry. I’ll be knitting right along side you!
Ana, I hope you feel better soon. Headaches can be absolutely debilitating. I was so intrigued and to learn that you were into my newfound hobby, knitting! How long have you been knitting? What are some of your favorite tools? I have been having a blast learning.
I’ve been knitting for about 12 years now (according to my stats on Ravelry!) I use mostly metal interchangeable needles from Knit Picks, HiyaHiya and Addi. I love indie dyers, Madeline Tosh and Rowan for yarn. I spend a ridiculous amount of time on Ravelry. Come say hi!
Thanks for the speedy response. What’s your ralvery handle?
You can find me on Ravelry as Sugaroni. I love all things sweet and noodle-y.
Who cares about the glitter…what is that lovely pattern and yarn! (PS, hope you are feeling better. It’s hard when you can’t knit.)
