I've never participated in a KAL here and I was perusing while thinking up a good present for my friend Mark's birthday. Bingo baby!

I knit this hat using the Basic Hat Recipe (http://www.mielkesfarm.com/bsic_hat.htm), which was so easy to follow. (I gotta say though, I even made a swatch to follow the recipe and the hat is too big and recommended ribbing too long...oh well).

I made him a pair of Cigar (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTcigar.html) in the same colors for xmas...so winged the pattern on this hat to have coordinating stripe patterns. And then the January KAL Challenge element--Morse Code!--says "M A R K" on the front. Yay! This was fun.

Here's a mirror pic of it on my head--so it says "K R A M" (heh) and then I tried to take a straight on pic to show the Morse Code.

So it's: --(M) .-(A) .-.(R) -.-(K) <---and if that's not right, don't tell me! :rofl:

That is so cool. Where did you find the morse code symbol chart?

Over on the KAL forum in the thread for the January Challenge--they posted a Morse Code chart for everyone. You can also just Google it and lots pop up.
