View Full Version : KH Monthly Challenge--October

10-02-2006, 04:48 PM
Sorry I'm late. Again :oops:

For October... it's getting cooler outside, and I personally find that my feet get cold before anything else. In that light, the challenge this month is to:

Knit for Below Your Waist

Anything that goes on your butt or below counts... socks, legwarmers, shorts, slippers, clogs, stockings, pants, longjohns, toewarmers, fishnets, etc. Even bikini bottoms and willie warmers :eyebrow:.

Happy Knitting!

Now I really kinda want to knit something for my butt.

10-02-2006, 04:57 PM
Oh, I think I have to take up this challenge with a novel knit. I'm going to have to think on this for a while.

10-02-2006, 07:21 PM
ooooh... my clogs are finally going to get knit!!!

:thinking: I got the clog pattern a few months ago, but don't have yarn yet... I'll think about it... but nothing for my butt! :teehee:

10-02-2006, 07:42 PM
And SKIRTS!!! Don't forget skirts!!! Knitty has several (http://www.knitty.com/archive.html)

10-02-2006, 07:59 PM
My mom and I just bought the clogs for adults, kids and baby felted booties from kemp's store. Can anyone guess what I will be knitting for this KAL? This will be my FIRST KAL btw :) I plan on making clogs for myself and probably some for my son for christmas!


10-02-2006, 08:02 PM
:doh: Man, I always forget about the monthly kal after the 1st few days! I will try to do better this month!

10-02-2006, 08:21 PM
Yah Danielle!!!! :yay:

GEE, rebecca, it's not like you have to knit something ELSE than your usually socks for THIS kal!!!!

You're gonna get the :!!!: guy if you don't participate THIS month!!

10-02-2006, 08:38 PM
You know I got to thinking, if you're knitting a sock cuff down, and finish the heel, before you start knitting all around again, if you stop and hold the sock sideways, it looks like a wee-knee warmer! :happydance:

10-02-2006, 09:00 PM
ahh yes. the perfect excuse to knit THIS. (http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer04/PATT302calories.html) :cheering: :happydance:

:roflhard: :rofl: :eyebrow:

(the smilies say it all)

10-02-2006, 10:12 PM
Don't eat it before you wear it!

10-02-2006, 10:34 PM
wow I should really click the link before I read any posts that come after it. Because I was thinking along the lines of weeny warmer or even that knitted penis that was posted a while back ( the :eyebrow: reinforced that thought)
And then I read Don't eat it before you wear it!

And went What the :!!!: !!!!!!

That was enough excitement for one night. :doh:

10-03-2006, 09:41 AM
I would like to knit leg warmers.. although I don' t know how I would wear them or if I'd wear them out... but for some reason I have the strong urge to give them a try :shrug:

10-03-2006, 06:48 PM
I might try legwarmers; I hate it when I get a draft between my sock and my pants. Legwarmers would close up that space but not overheat my feet like extra long thick socks.

GEE, rebecca, it's not like you have to knit something ELSE than your usually socks for THIS kal!!!!

I'm in, I'm in!

WIP Sock has been on a sock journey for a little while on my blog, so we are IN!

I wanna play too :happydance:
I just finished my Mom's slipper socks, my first attempt at socks, and now I'm hooked, just bought some size 2 needles at JoAnns with a 40%off cupon, so now I have 8 size 2...why don't they come in packs of 5??? Anyway I've been wanting to knit my dd a pair of socks. Maybe I can get them done in time for Balloon Fiesta?! Humm, it starts this Sat, maybe not. I'll give it a heck of a try though.
o boy!
I could use sport weight yarn for the baby's socks because I want them to be like slipper socks for her, right? (with my size 2)

10-17-2006, 10:59 AM
Now I really kinda want to knit something for my butt.

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

10-19-2006, 10:59 AM
I finished my clogs. They're sitting at home drying right now... :cheering: :cheering:

10-19-2006, 12:30 PM
I'm making Slipper Socks (http://www.tropicalyarns.com/index.cfm?PID=22&ProdID=317) for my son in college.

I'm using two strands of yarn together.
Caron Simply Soft (http://shopcaron.com/shop/cart.php?target=product&product_id=121) in Dark Country Blue
and TLC Amore (http://www.coatsandclark.com/Products/Knitting/Medium+Yarns/TLC+Amore.htm) in Lake Blue

The slipper socks are gonna be SO SOFT!

sock eats out
sock asleep with brother, Sock

too much :rofl:

That picked up my morning! (I just started the 2nd sock yesterday so I'm sort of in....) (never did this before, it's cute)

I need to knit a skirt too, thanks for reminding me Hildie.

10-25-2006, 12:06 PM
Ha, whilst knitting on my sock just now I realised it's THE END OF OCTOBER. Talk about being late. :doh:

10-25-2006, 02:11 PM
I've finished ONE of the slipper socks, and it has been claimed by my husband! I should finish the second one today, and then I'll make another pair for my son. :)

10-25-2006, 05:43 PM
I just realized that my project won't be done on time either Vic. :shrug:

Looking back, I think the ONLY one I completed on time was the very first one, April of 05. Isn't that horrible???

10-25-2006, 06:02 PM
Nah, it just proves that you're human like the rest of us! :muah:

10-27-2006, 12:44 AM
Hildegard....human?! Get OUT! She isn't cause she's got super powers :teehee: Even I know that :wink: Gosh, it's fun to mess with Hilde :teehee:

WIP Sock is no longer WIP Sock, he's now grown up like his brother, Sock! No more eating out with me, when the Sock brothers eat out with us from now on, they'll be on Lonnie's feet! I'll post a photo tomorrow, the Sock Brothers are asleep on the sock blockers now, I don't have the heart to wake them :wink:

10-27-2006, 12:00 PM
YOU BLOCK YOUR SOCKS?? Wow, I never heard of that, really. We just put them on immediately. Hmmm. Does it make them look better that much?

Like that slipper sock. You can make one in a day???!

10-27-2006, 05:54 PM
Yep, I block all of my socks before I photograph them. Well, I sometimes block socks after I wash them, too, depending upon the sock pattern. I blocked my Leaves of Whimsy socks (http://www.divaknitting.com/store/index.php?main_page=document_product_info&cPath=60&products_id=234) after I washed them yesterday.

Okay, as I said before, the Sock Brothers are done! I snuck up on them today and took a couple of photos while they were playing, then napping after they had been climbing a tree :wink:

Rebecca, you're such a NUT!
(taking pictures of your socks while they are playing..... :teehee: )

10-30-2006, 12:32 AM
LOL, I know...I had to be really quiet and sneak up on them...they still don't know I got the pics :teehee:

10-30-2006, 09:41 AM
Well I didn't get the leg warmers even started for the KAL but I did make some Slipper socks for my grandmother :teehee: I'll get a picture later today or tomorrow...

10-31-2006, 06:53 PM
Here are my slipper socks.. I still wanna do leg warmers.. sometime :teehee:

ETA: I forgot to put the pattern :teehee:

10-31-2006, 10:21 PM
Well, my clogs are getting some good use! I just can't believe how hot my feet can get sometimes with them on. It's crazy.

I used WOTA in Chocolate and Chambray.

10-31-2006, 10:29 PM
Love them!!!
