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.
