Sorry this is late--I totally forgot (stupid? Yes I am)
This month's challenge will be...
A KNIT/PURL COMBO PROJECT!
Come on, they might seem simple, but we all know that knit/purl combination are endless. They can be used to create diamonds, stripes, anything you wish to have textural variation. There are some interesting choices, design wise. I myself will be continuing an old project, the Drops Sweater that I've blogged about before. But, you can knit anything.
A knit/purl combination is classified as anything which uses knit and purl stitches in the same row
. Or, garter stitch in the round, which uses both knitting and purling.
There are some good choices, such as many patterns and stitches at Knitting Pattern Central
. Or, make up your own, using the percentage system. There are also many stitch possibilitieshere
Knit whatever you want! Good luck, and I hope this challenge is more popular than last month's. I'll be around daily to offer help, advice, and compliments, as will other great knitters.
BTW--Here's my project.
