That was a good one, Ingrid :D !!
I, too, have all sorts of color (mosaic, fairisle, intarsia, u name it) work & other things planned ..... for after I finish my current project list.... BUT I did cast on in a color that I've never used before I say that & when my new A Knitting Glossary DVD that my sweetums ordered for my for my bday gets here...there's no telling what I will do!! 4 hours of EZ on dvd...just WOW!!! And a friend of mine that is a good friend of Meg Swansen tells me that all of EZ's videos are going to be put on dvd in 2006

I am making scarves with 5 strands of eyelash yarn (each a different color) and using size 17 needles. They will be my "Fiesta" Long and Skinny scarves.

I also just started my Rogue Hoodie in KP Merino Honey colored yarn.

Ok this is cheating, so don't worry, I'll work on something else for this KAL....but here's a green hat I just finished!!! It fits in November's KAL too, b/c it was the first time I knitted using the stranding method for the different colors. I learned how to knit English style with this hat.

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.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I've been meaning to learn how to add color with a technique such as using a color chart, and your color challenge seems like a good time to try! Anybody have a suggestion for a first, easier project for learning how to knit with color? A hat maybe? Hmmm :thinking:

Gosh, you are so fortunate! It's only like in the 70s here...

I really want to get in on this challenge... I only hope I have the time

And Holly, try doing a mosaic knitted hat, it's a really simple technique with hardly any weaving in of the ends! I'm going to try this technique again soon.

I'm in if I can combine last month's challenge with this month's challenge. The hat I am knitting (for me for the first time) is black with chunks of bright color. Beautiful!! I chose the perfect yarn for it since I haven't ever found any yarn that was me before! (see 2 firsts :D )

I cast on for socks last night using Knitpicks Simple Stripes in Tropics. That's probably the most colorful yarn I've used, not that it's very wintery.
