KH Monthly Challenge: February
Ahhh February... wintery, snowy, windy, gray... thank goodness it only has 28 days!!! In spite of the bleakness of February, we *can* find a little splash of color if we look hard enough...
February's birth stone is the Amethyst, and the February flower is the violet. February is, mostly importantly, the birth month of our beloved Andrea, who ****LOOOOOOOOVES***** the color purple. So, your challenge for February, is to knit something PURPLE.

Red is *so* overdone in February, don't you think?

This would be a great project for those of you wanting to learn fair isle! Amy's video is here.

Purple is one of the spring "it" colors, again, so maybe it's time to start on a cute twin set, or light sweater.

Your project can be all purple, have a little bit of purple, use varying shades and tints of creative!!! This is completely open-ended... just bring out that purple yarn and make it into whatever you want!

Happy xxx ,
I'm back!

I'd love to join! I have some purple sock yarn in my stash, AND it will count as a stash buster project
Are you alive? Good. You can still do something

FO's: Just finished both of my pink socks. Nothing fancy, but alright.
WIP: Nothing. It's so depressing
Up Next: Purse for my friend (still need to get yarn)

Oh, yay! I *never* get to do these, but the clogs I'm knitting are mostly purple!!! Now I have a reason to focus on getting the 2nd one done!!
