This will be a FIRST for me. I'm going to do a RED APPLE dishcloth.

great! all the projects sound fantastic!

I lost the ******ing cord to connect my *******ing camera to the ******* computer, so I can't take a picture of my nephew's uber-ugly hat! But it's done, in 5 hideous colors of WOTA. (colors that look nice in general, just not together! but he picked them!)

well, no that's a lie. I can take the picture, I just can't show it to you all. yet!

Hmm... would using a multi-colored yarn be allowed? Or do we have to do color changes?

I changed my mind already. LOL, I MIGHT make the three crosses dishcloth in red for the blood of Christ and white trim for his purity http://www.knittingknonsense.com/3crossescloth.html OR do a dishcloth with musical notes on it for all the great Christmas music. http://www.knittingknonsense.com/musicnotes.html OR maybe a fish for Christ feeding the fish in green. http://www.crochetnmore.com/betsythebass.htm
I really don't know what I'm doing. LOL,
Susie

Ok I am annoyed. I finished the hat. (November-December project?) It was made with smaller yarn than I used on my mother's, but it is bigger The ribbing is also not stretchy. I have never had this problem before. I am going to try sewing the ribbing with elastic thread to make it stretchy and I will let you know if it came out better. :thinking:

Well, I finally bit the bullet and did colorwork that required more than two colors. I'm skeered of weaving in all those freakin' ends...but it's off the needles!

The bottom pattern was supposed to be repeated above the hearts but that would have mede for one freakishly tall hat. And I really wish I'd done a roll-brim instead of ribbing...but oh well...all in all it wasn't that painful, and I'll let it out of the house.

Ok the hat is now a ball of yarn. My youngest daughter said that it looked like a shower cap (pretty much echoing my thoughts). I am going to reknit it into a different kind of hat/scarf combination thing. I will keep you posted.

Okay, I think I combined the November/December KAL's into one- I originally said that I was going to try socks for the November KAL. I realized that it wasn't going to happen, and did my first hat instead. For December, I did manage my first sock, and it is colorful!!
