If you aren't participating in NaNoWriMo (some day!) and are looking for a November Challenge, how about weaving? Fall is finally here. Hard summer work has slacked off. Christmas Panic has not set in...yet (aka denial). Several friends and I have been talking about a weaving challenge or exchange...for longer than any of really want to admit. Let's just do it! We can be WeSoInNo ;-).
Feel free to steal this button :-).
Or we can just try to weave something in November :-).
Here's the deal. Much like the Knitting Olympics or the Tour de Fleece, pick a good personal challenge for yourself. This can be anything - rag rugs, dish towels, shawls, scarves, throws, blankets... It could be just learning how to warp the loom that's been sitting in your spare bedroom for the last few years. Don't have a loom but would like to join in? How about making a cardboard tapestry loom? They're great fun! So are potholder looms.
For the month of November (minus today obviously...sigh), work on your weaving challenge. You can join the Punkin's Patch Ravelry group and let us know what you've picked as your challenge and how you are progressing or if you have questions/need help/can help... Or, you can just leave a comment here or send me an email. If you join in for the challenge and complete your goal, we'll have some prizes at the end :-). Simple as that. Just weave something in November.
My challenge is completing two projects. While that doesn't seem like much of a challenge, when you consider how many times I've actually been the one using my loom this past year...two projects is huge (hanging head in shame). My first project is Jenny's "Grandma". I spun the yarn for the Tour de Fleece last year (see a pattern?)
I have some locks set aside (for a special touch...I hope).
And picked my pattern - that would have been, yeah, um, last year as well.
My second project? To be determined, but I'm leaning towards something wearable. And finished in November....just in time to start freaking out about Christmas. A day/month/year too late ;-).
Ready to weave something in November?
