this might be the first challenge i take up... (the others kinda intimidated me i'm ashamed to admit) altho i really gotta finish that ponco first.

BUT... i've recently coordinated my leftovers & whatnot stash (am i the only freak that's done this btw?) into ziplocks that might look good together...

so i havta start now & finish by the 19th? (zat how this works?)

If you want to do this for the world cup thingy then you have until whatever date is the end of that.... otherwise this challenge runs the entire month of June. But we're not picky about when you finish :-)

Don't be intimidated Rox! The is the easiest one so far!

Scrumble Resources
I must say again, Scrum-deleeicious idea! And this coordinates so well with all the stash busting knit alongs I've joined for the summer.

If you're a bit unsure about this (as I was when I first heard about it a few months ago) try this tactic - just get some of the yarn left overs and the "I'm not so sure about this anymore" novelty stuff out of your stash, grab a few different needles (or crochet hooks - is that allowed Hilde??? Mixed media, etc?) and just knit while watching a movie, don't even pay attention to what your doing really. Bind off and pick up some stiches anywhere on your "swatch" and start with another yarn. That's what I intend to do.

There is a good article on this free-form technique in the Summer 2006 issue of Knit.1 (page 25). The article lists a good reference for a website too where designer Prudence Mapstone shows photos of a scrumble "evolving"

That site is right here

I've been wanting to do one of these, and I thought, "Oh boy, it's the BEGINNING of the month. Maybe I can actually DO one this time!"

But, alas, I am not a freeform kind of girl. I prefer to follow a pattern exactly.

How about if it's a "FREE" project, as in a charity object? Something we don't make for ourselves?

Carolina Red, that is a great idea!!!

And, yes, J, crochet is TOTALLY allowed! I'm not sure it can be done authentically without some crochet anyway... :thinking:

Oh boy...the more I look at this I'm just not sure I knit something that crazy on purpose. I think about it though. I've got lots of stashbusting to do... :thinking:

Wonderful! I'm so glad I can do that. I LOVE to knit for charity.

After giving this some consideration, I've decided to make something that might seem depressing, but it's a necessary item for charity.

This little gown, bonnet and booties is for the dressing of a baby born asleep. It comforts the parents to see their little one dressed before they say goodbye.

To me, this is a way to "free" the spirit of a little one to eternity. I'll do my best to finish it before the month is over. Oh! And I'm using some "FREE" yarn that someone gave to me at church.
