I guess I am in too. (As long as self striping yarn counts!) I am doing fingerless mittens in KP Sock Landscape. And a cape for my dd in Noro Kurieyon.

um, do the four simple ponchos in self-striping foliage that I'm making for gifts count? 'Cause I'm all over this challenge if they're eligible!

Yeah! I've got some self striping colorful yarn for socks, and some colorful WOTA for my bag! Great idea for a simple KA for the holidays!

YAY!!!!

I really tried to make it as EASY to participate as possible. I guess if what you're knitting has a holiday color theme (red, green, blue) it can count as extra special

And yes, cream, puke green, white and black are colors. CLEAR is not a color :-) Self-striping yarn counts!

I would like to see some colorwork going on... spread your wings, people! Venture into the the realm of discovery! hey the anniversary of the Pilgrims landing on Plymouth Rock is in December--follow in their foorsteps and explore new (knitting) territory!

That is really something I am dying to try however I am going to have to wait until after Christmas. Too many projects still to do for Christmas.

So what you're saying is pretty much anything goes.

I've never seen clear yarn.. might make an interesting sweater and it would certainly draw attention.
