KH Monthly Challenge--November
KH's second anniversary is November 4th! In honor of this occasion, your mission is to



KNIT TWO




Knit two of anything... perfect weather for two socks, gloves, clogs or mittens!

try a DOUBLE KNIT hat!

Add two colored stripes to your current project!

Knit a felted bag with TWO straps!

A scarf that uses TWO skeins of mmmmmmmmmalibrigo!(it will be about 9 feet long.... ask how I know.....)

A willie warmer with two "pom poms"

Add two pockets to your fall jacket!

Knit a swatch in two colors!

It's, two, two knits in one!!!!


Have another idea? (or two??) Post them here.... be creative! The original goal of these monthly challenges was to incorporate the challenge into your current project, so don't feel like you have to start something new--find a creative way to add TWO to whatever you're working on now.


Happy knitting! xxx

I think this one will be pretty easy. Does knitting with two needles count?

My one year KH anniversary is on November 1st. I think I did about four things for my first ever KAL, which was last November's challenge.

Woo hoo! Yeah for 2 years of KH!

I'll be working on mittens for my kids.

I already have these felted mittens on the needles for my son.

I also want to try the felted mittens in this book.

And depending how everything is turning out I may also try "regular" mittens using this pattern or this pattern.

Hehe you gals and your willie warmers, I suppose I could knit one, but mind you I would NOT model it for you....after all don't want to scare you away. Though I will probably get in on this challenge as well.
