KnittingHelp Monthly Challenge - December
This month's challenge will be a little different (I hope it's okay with AMy and the mods)

This month, how about we try to complete all the projects we started this year? But that, I mean finish all our WIPs so we can get a fresh start on the New Year, and make rom for all the new projects we'll be starting from our gift yarn! Come on, it'll be fun, and this actually will be a challenge!

If you don't want to do that, than how about Holiday Knitting? Knit projects with the theme of whatever holiday you choose to celebrate. I will go with options one and two, the second being Meg Swansen's Christmas stocking that she's knitting on Schoolhouse Press website.

I hope you have fun with this challenge(s). I'll be in every day to offer help and advice, and support.
One of many knitting guys.

It's a busy month for everyone so I think this is just fine, Braden. We can get started with a new theme for January.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Yeah, just today I decided to make my sons and their wives hats for Christmas.... At least 3 of them will be using stash yarn though, maybe even all 4. Good thing hats only take a few hours...

That sounds like a plan to me! I'm not doing much in the way of holiday knitting. I just got Oddball Blanket #1, and have to do that first, but then I'm planning on finishing up a couple of shawls that have been sitting here for a few months. I'm not planning on starting anything new (unless it's a wee traveling project). But if I can get those two shawls finished by the end of the month, I'll be happy!
