KH Monthly Challenge--March!
It's a little early, but I'll be on a plane tomorrow, so I had to post tonight!

In honor of March, the third month, and the month of St. Patrick's Day, your challenge is.....

Knit THREE

I finally settled on THREE, because of the 3-leaf clover which is known as a symbol of Ireland (to me, anyway) and St. Patrick's Day. March being the third month just added to the drama :-)

March third is an interesting day in itself: it is National Anthem Day, AND Alexander Graham Bell's birthday.


Some things to knit for THREE:
Something with 3 stripes (clogs, hat, wristwarmers)
A shamrock (intarsia on a hat, scarf, cuff.... maybe a shamrock pin)
Something with 3 colors (booga bag, sweater)
A pair of socks and a half a pair (maybe that abandoned pair could be finished, hmmm?)
Three Chemo Kid Hats (dotmom will love you!)
Applique a shamrock on a sweater sleeve
Go extra-Irish and knit something with three CABLES
Three scarves-- knit three bobbie scarves for Woman's History Month!

Here is a link to knitting pattern central shamrock patterns


Extra points for throwing some green in there!

Happy knitting!!!

Hmm! I got some green yarn, too. However, I'm just hoping to finish three projects this month--the three I have on the needles at the moment:

1. My hooded baby blanket
2. My first sock (I will start the second)
3. My first teenie-preemie hat for the CKAL.
__________________
On the needles: Falling Leaves Socks, Punkin Hats, Artful Afgan and another waterlily for a friend of mine (on hold until I feel like working with that yarn again)

In the queue:
Jack Skellington baby afghan
Finished: Warm Up America Square, Basketweave Baby Blanket (now to ship it), Massachusetts Dishcloth for the Yarn Harlot, Homeless Hat
, water bottle cozy

It's never too late to join a KAL, so start the Tubey-liciousness! Heck, so many of the first participants are still working on it that you might actually get it done before we do! :rofling:

My Tubey is three colors, so I suppose that will count if I ever finish it.
This might be cheating, but my Nietzsche doll was kind of three! It was my first ever own pattern, my first time making a doll, and my first time stuffing something. That's three firsts, right? Kinda?
