November KAL

Nobody's started this yet??

I'm still working on dh's 2nd sock and a raglan sweater for Claire (I'm on the 1st sleeve) and I'm hoping to get at least ONE of them done this month. What are everyone else's goal for November?

ETA: forgot about Oliver's navy blue cargo longies...

Re: November KAL

I am trying to finish the second leg on a pair of longies for ds but it is taking me wayyy longer than it should be. I need to make a pair of mittens to go with a scarf I made my mom for her birthday and if I get all that done then I will start on a RH sweater for dd

Re: November KAL

1) colorful scarf - Christmas gift (finished 11/12)


2) blue/white scarf - Christmas gift (recently started and now frogged, recast on 11/23)


3) white shrug (2) for DD (cast on 11/1, finished 11/7 - still needs a button, but a little too small)


3b) white shrug for DD take 2 (size 4)

4) mittens for DD

5) raspberry sweater (size 2-4) or RHS for DD (cast on 11/6, finished 11/25)


6) gray/black hat and scarf - Christmas gift

7) brown longies for newbie

8) blue/green purewool NB longies for newbie (cast on 11/13, finished 11/24)


9) blue hat - Christmas gift

10) blue sweater for newbie (cast on 11/25)

Big list, but I think it can be done. I want to have all of my christmas knitting done by Thanksgiving so I can start sewing bedding and curtains for newbie's room

Re: November KAL

I have way too much stuff to try to get done this month. I'm working on a custom order right now that I thought I would be done with yesterday, but then all of my kids were sick last week and I fell way behind.

For this month I need to do:
4 pairs of custom longies
1 pair of longies to stock at TOKW
RHS for my niece (Xmas present but I really want to finish it in time to give it to her at Thanksgiving)
Hat for DH
At least 2 pairs of longies for DS2
Hat for DD
2 patterns I want to start writing
Something for TOKW's Black Friday stocking (I'm thinking some socks in kettle-dyed Kona DK, so I have to dye yarn too )

Re: November KAL

Oh, I forgot the 2 pairs of longies and a soaker that were supposed to be done in September and October but the yarn from the manufacturer/dyer was really delayed.

Re: November KAL

I have a bunch to get done this month, Christmas knitting and all, I am almost done with customs though until the end of the year. I have

- The 2nd half of a hud hat for a custom
- Another custom hud hat
- RHS for both girls (Allies is about 10% done, haven't started Hannah's yet)
- pinafore for both girls
- 2 pair longies for Hannah

I'd also like to get to a drop stitch scarf and hat for myself

Re: November KAL

I know it's not knitting, but I figured I'd share anyway. Here's what I got done yesterday and today! These are a custom for a trade with another DS mama! I had so much fun making these

Two eggs, bacon, and toast:



Hamburger w/ all the fixin's (the top bun is stuffed with yarn scraps to make it puff up and look like a real bun):

Re: November KAL

NO WONDER I thought everyone had disappeared.. duh, new thread!!! I am working on the Ninja's again today (everyone send positive striping vibes!!) and I have tassels left to do on my HH, another HH to make for Elliana, and I want to try and attempt the Thuja socks for a surprise for my husband.

Side note - did anyone noticed that A Twisted Stitch re-opened today? Kimi has some gorgeous stuff! I wish my husband didnt have such an aversion to purple or I would be all over that superwash DK " Shelby" for an RHS!!!
