Update 21 Jan 08:  Prizes have been added!  See below!

The first Craftster Knitting Challenge of 2008 is here!  The beginning of each new year is a good time to reflect on everything you've learned in the last year, and to think about all the things you could learn in the next one.  Accordingly, this challenge is all about adding a new skill to your repertoire.  It is the perfect challenge for members of ANY skill level, includng brand-new knitters.  Maybe you've always wanted to try fair-isle, but just couldn't get the courage up, or you've been lurking on the knitting boards making comments like, "That project is so cool, I wish I could knit!" or you've never been able to get the hang of dpns, so socks scare the bejeesus out of you, or maybe you're a fearless knitter who never shirks from any new challenge, but there are still a FEW things you DON'T know how to do yet.  Cheesy  If you're ANY of these things, this is the challenge for you! 

This challenge is different from any other challenge we've done, so the format is going to differ a little as well.  Not only is this a challenge, but it's a kind of knitalong as well.  Everyone who enters is joining together to learn something new. 

The project must be started and completed during the entry period.  No old projects will be accepted!  In order to ensure this, please take a picture before starting your project that includes project supplies and some form of dated material, like a receipt, newspaper, etc.  This dated picture and a picture of the completed project are required.  In-progress pictures of your project are welcome, but not required! Smiley

Because of this unique approach, you do not have to start your entry thread with a completed entry.  For this challenge, and only for this challenge, you can start your project thread with your first, dated, picture.  You can add pictures and discussion as you go, and if you have questions for those who've used the technique before, you can add those as well.  If you prefer to wait until your project is complete to post your entry, that's fine too, so long as you have your dated picture and your compelted picture included in the entry.

(In the event that your project is not complete by the end of the entry period, your entry will not be included in the voting.  Unfinished project threads will be left in the challenge archive for a month to give you time to finish your project so the thread can be moved to Completed Projects, but at the end of that month the threads left unfinished will be deleted.)

The format:

When posting your challenge entry, please post it under Knitting Challenge Entries. For this challenge, please title your thread with the technique you're learning and the project your making! Example: "Fair Isle Skully Beanie" or "Magic Loop Basic Sock"  In the message body, post the title of your entry and clear pictures.

The Deadline:

The crafting period will last from now until February 28, with voting from March 1 to March 6. 

The Prizes (the best part!):

At the moment, the only prize you'll win in this challenge is a brand new knitting skill and the satisfaction of a job well done.  That may change at any moment, depending on whether we get a donation between now and the end of this challenge.  Cheesy

Craftster member Ivycircle has generously donated your choice of $20 worth of merchandise from her Etsy store, Subversive Yarns!  Thanks Ivycircle!!


Rules:

- Members do not need to have a certain post count or have been a member for so long to participate. Everyone is welcome!
- All items must be handmade by the poster.
- The item must be knitted, but it does not have to be hand-knitted.  Looms and machines qualify.
- Only one entry per poster, though you may incorporate multiple things into your one entry (such as with a set)
- Items can be as big or as small as you want, unless otherwise stated in the theme.
- You must use the theme provided.
- You may use written patterns for this theme if you so choose.  Please provide information in your entry on which pattern you used.
- this is an important one: Make sure all pictures are visible through the time of voting. Pictures will appear in the voting, so please keep an eye on your bandwidth and hyperlinks!  Entries where the photo links do not work when it comes time to vote will not be included.  Craftster offers reliable picture hosting to registered members and also incorporates photobucket software into the forum code to make photobucket accounts easier to use. Take advantage of these features!

I am new to craftster and i taught myself to knit a little over a year ago. i was interested in this challenge. although i have a question:

The initial picture with dated material: I already had yarn from my stash, so I could not really show receipt for the purchase. Although I did print the pattern yesterday and it has the date on the print-out. Would this be sufficient?

I also took pictures of starting the piece and intermediate steps.

 Huh

You don't have to show a picture of the original purchase receipt.  Just stick something in the picture that has the same date as the day you take the picture.  A receipt for your lunch would be fine.  You can even cover up what the receipt is actually FOR. Cheesy  Hope that makes sense.  If you've already started (or even finished) the project, the printed pattern with the printer date-stamp on it will be just fine and dandy. Cheesy  My only intention is to have SOME form of photographic proof that the project was begun during the entry period.

Ooooh yeah! I'm so in on this.

I just need to decide what to do...I really need to learn how to do circular properly and also how to do cables. I've got some gorgeous yarn at home that wants to be part of this challenge!

Once I've finished my swaps, that is.

What a cool idea! I may have to go through my knitting pattern notebook. I can only knit and purl and am terrified of dpn's and circs so perhaps this is the perfect thing to help me out!

I found that the fetching pattern on knitty.com was a fairly good way to get over fears of DPN's. You could probably even leave off the cables to make them less scary (though less interesting too). The reason it's not too scary is that there are only 15 stitches on each DPN (45 total), so even if you pull on the wrong needle, it's not a complete disaster (pulled a needle out completely twice, and partially two other times, and dropped a few stitches at the beginning).

I'll have to do some thinking on what I could do for this.  I'm kind of scared of making a sweater (will it fit? will it look awful?), but I'm reasonably sure I knit too slowly to get it done in time. Maybe lace?

I know EXACTLY what I'm going to do. Got the pattern, just waiting for my yarn to arrive. I like that this is so early in the year so I can't get lazy and put off my New Year's knitting resolutions.

Go for a sweater! Only make it easy - like from the top down and rather than a full fledged sweater, do a bolero type or cropped sweater or whatever they call it! There is a very good tutorial on knitting a raglan from the top down and I think you could easily make it short sleeved and cropped! Go for it!!!!!! Expand your horizons!
(And I think it is easier than lace, too)

this is an awesome idea - i just got a japanese knitting book for a late christmas present - so think i'm going to jump in and try and figure out the instructions - may start with one of the wraps in the book rather than a sweater straight away .... off to go look at stash

Ok I can't decide so you guys have to help me. The whole reason I wanted to learn knitting and crochet is to make toys. I love toys. So I've wanted to make a mr. dangly but have put it off becasue I've been doubting myself.

But I also like mittens and love the look of knitted garments. So I was going to make mittens for the challenge but the wonderful craftsters are walking me through it step by step since I've never done this sort of thing before. And thus I don't have a pattern to photograph with a date stamp post as proof of starting.

So Which should I do? I need some help deciding!

Oh! I might join. I was thinking to myself "Why am I even looking at the knitting challenge, I've only ever made one skinny garter stitch scarf... And that was over a year ago!"

But no.. this is a perfect time to re-figure out how to knit. And work on a new skill too! (Though that would be pretty much everything!)

Eliea, you don't have to have a PATTERN with a date  stamp on it.  That's just easy for a lot of people.  You don't even have to have a pattern at all.  You can use anything at all with a date on it; a newspaper, a pic of your yarn in front of the TV Guide Channel, or in front of the clock on your computer, whatever works.  And besides which, your posts about mittens have a date stamp on them, so everyone knows when you started asking about mittens. Cheesy

Cool. I may have to start the mittens and mr. dangly and see which looks like I could get it done in time. Becasue I really want to enter. Smiley And time is a factor. Now if I could just finish the hat for my brothers birthday. the thing is evil. It hates me. I should have long ago finished it but it's still less than halfway done.

Hm... I might try 2 socks at the same time on 2 circs for this one.

Or, fair isle cables (where the cables are a different color than the background) and desinging my own pattern.  So many choices!

All right I think in order to actually start and finish something and achieve at least one of my goals (knitting in the round) I may make a knit beaded cuff. I have all the stuff to do that and can make up my own pattern as well as take it with me easier than mittens. I have like 20 pages of tips and tuts on dpns printed out for the mittens and I haven't even started yet! lol

Well, let's see.  I took a pic of some yarn and a pattern for the top down raglan.  Then I discovered that my gauge was off by a.... well, a lot.  So I took another picture of different yarn, and a different pattern (slipper socks).  My gauge came out great.  I got the first sock about 3/4 of the way done, and realized that there's no way it will fit anyone here.  I felt like a textbook case from Knitting Rules!, because I kept knitting, even though it was pretty obvious looking at the first set of ribbing that it wasn't going to go over anyone's foot (I blame my husband for it. He said it would be fine, and I believed him).  I also checked the sock section after I'd finished the ribbing for the top of the sock, having used knitted cast on, only to read the words: do not use "knitted cast on" for socks.  Roll Eyes  I blame the sweater. It was the first time I'd done knitted cast on. Apparently, 200 cast on stitches can affect what you default to.

If I get the socks done (with a stretchier cast on, and more stitches), I'll post them.  I had these grand plans that I was going to conquer my fear of knitting socks AND of kool aid dyeing.  I'll have to see how it goes (with the way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that my yarn is acrylic, when my kool aid dyeing attempts fail miserably).  It doesn't *feel* like acrylic, but it's a mystery yarn from a swap.

Still, I think I've actually conquered my fear of socks, having figured out how to do the heel (which looks like the hardest part.  If the toe's harder, don't tell me till the challenge is over).  Grin

Oh wow.  I can't believe I just found this thread.  I only just learned to knit, so my projects in Jan and Feb have ALL been firsts.  First sweater, first fair isle, first 'in the round', first lace, first socks, first Magic Loop.  I didn't think to document or photograph them though, except through my project notes on Ravelry.  I guess I still have time to start another one... but with only a week to whip up something, it won't be too impressive.

Well, it was an excellent challenge - it got me knitting socks - I got one almost done and hated how loose it was, so wanted to switch to a smaller needle, but had to order it. It came too late for me to finish my socks ...

BUT - the challenge did what it was meant to do - expand my horizon - so I thank you so much for it!

I finished my slipper socks a week or so ago, but my computer/camera are not cooperating at this time, so I didn't end up getting my entry up (which is ok because I think the entries that have been posted are great).  I probably wouldn't have tried socks yet if it weren't for the challenge, so thanks Lothruin!

Hello! I'm also wondering about the voting. Is it happening but I can't find it or?
I have also finished my lace shawl now. (But not on time for the challenge) Can I ad the FO to my challenge post? Now or after the voting?
Take care!

I can't find the voting either?  Was there an extension?

I don't know if there was an extension or not ... but when I posted that I couldn't finish in time, Lothruin said I could still post one sock by the end of MARCH ... so perhaps it runs until end-March?

OK, I'll post my finished shawl now. You are more than welcome to have a look. I'm very proud of it. Smiley It was a huge job but I made it.
If there is an extension I look forward to see what everyone else will have time to finish. Smiley

I think she was referring to this when she said you could add to your post up til the end of March:

In the event that your project is not complete by the end of the entry period, your entry will not be included in the voting.  Unfinished project threads will be left in the challenge archive for a month to give you time to finish your project so the thread can be moved to Completed Projects, but at the end of that month the threads left unfinished will be deleted.

I just haven't had time, guys.  Sorry.  I'll try to do it today.


ETA:  Now I have a moment, I wanted to add that yes, what was said above is the case.  The actual entry period is over, but you still have time to post a completed project before I reorganize the challenge board.  If you were working on multiple projects and got one done during the entry period, that project will be your entry, unless I hear otherwise.

I hope everyone who participated in this challenge is proud of the things they've learned, even if you didn't finish in time!  It was definitely fun for the rest of us to watch your journeys.  So heartfelt congrats to everyone who participated!  (I know this is dorky but...) You're all winners in my book.  Wink  And good luck to those of you in the poll!  It will be a very tough choice!

ETA:  I've been told the pictures aren't showing up for at least one person.  They're showing up for me, even after clearing my cache, so let me know if you're experiencing a problem, please.

Congrats to Nven for her buttony cardigan!  And again, congrats to everyone else, too, because you all rock pretty hard.  Just so you know.
