September, already!!! (I'm actually writing this in July, and saving as a draft, so i don't forget my idea!)

September 24th marks the 100 year anniversary of the declaration of the USA's first national monument--Devil's Tower, in Crook County, Wyoming. (http://www.nps.gov/deto/) I think it was featured in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Anywho, in honor of this event, your challenge for September is:

Knit something Devilish

Teddy Roosevelt, who declared Devil's Tower the first national monumnet after the Antiquities Act was passed, was an avid conservationalist.... so let's conserve our $$ by making the KAL a Stash Buster as well.

Since it will be getting chilly soon, I will be knitting the "Little Devil" hat from S&B. If you don't have the book this pattern (http://kittyville.com/knit/adult_devil_hat.html) from knitting pattern central looks very similar.

This KAL is going to be open to everyone's interpretation, so GET CREATIVE. Since we're stash busting, I'm looking forward to seeing lots of small things... socks, wrist warmerws, hats, hand warmers, etc. Unless you have a gigantic stash, then, go ahead, make a big ole sweater :-D

Don't get caught up in the "Devil" motif either, or limit yourself to pitchforks and horns..... go for flames, fire, red/orange/yellow... maybe something "devilishly naughty" is in order :eyebrow:

Happy Knitting!!!

Have you ever noticed that CONSERVATIONALIST and CONVERSATIONALIST look a LOT alike? :thinking:

Hilde!!!! :hug: :muah:

*ahem*
Anyway I have a design for wrist warmers bouncing around in my head that would be perfect for this, unfortunatly they would not be stash busters. SO I may try something small but no guarentee. Why is it that the closer to graduation that you get the more work they give you? :??

I will be interested in seeing what everyone comes up with though!

Okay, this is a stash buster, except for the yarn I had to pick up for the edging and, Sally was certainly acting naughty when I put it on her and she was running around the house trying to get it off!
Annie Modesitt's combo corset t as seen on knitty gritty, modified to fit Sally using KP's Swish yarn.

I'm going to try to get these done this month: Pirate Mittens (http://www.helloyarn.com/piratemittens.htm). Not exactly devilish, but they will be red and bada$$.

I'm about 1/3 of the way done with the first one, and I just started them yesterday.

What about making this? (http://www.girlfromauntie.com/patterns/clothing/mood/mood_toque.php)

There's a little devil pattern to it that I think would be cute on a pair of watching wristwarmers.

If I wanted to, I would try to make these devil wings. But I don't want to. :teehee:

Hello Hello Well I am new to knitting 4 or 5 months old. But I am in love I have always wanted to do it and now that I have I am addicted. I have no idea what to make but I love this idea. I will probably end up making that cute little skull bag. I hope it turnes out and I cant wait to see what others make.





And remember your knitting is only as good as the attitude you have while doing it.

Kisses :flirt:

That wasn't easy!!! You totally have to have 2 people to get a cozy on a cat's tail !! What happened was... my husband held Mr. Felix down while I slipped the devil tail onto him. I left the co and bo tail attatched to the devil tail and then wrapped the bo and co tail a couple times around the end of Mr. Felix's cat tail and tied it in a bow. Then my husband let go of him long enough for me to take a couple pictures. After about 3 minutes the devil tail was off of Felix.... well kinda chewed off lol. I tried to do it while Felix was sleeping, but that didn't work. I'm sure an older cat would be better to work with lol.... a one year old thinks it is a game :roflhard: !

I'm making the devil hat for this KAL...

So far I've done the hat and one ear flap. I'm knitting it with Lamb's Pride in Blue Blood Red, a fitting color I thought.

I will be making several of these... I'm sure my daughters friends will want one after she wears this to school on Monday.

Please excuse the model... I look like well... Hell... LOL
