Happy November!

There's an oxymoron for you. November is my least favorite month. Traditionally leafless, sunless, and snowless, November seems the seasonal embodiment of depression.

Not today tho. It's beautifully sunny out, and there are many leaves still hanging on, although the colors have turned decidedly brownish. But Dreary November is coming, I can feel it.

Since it's November, UFOctober is officially done! How did everyone do? I finished the purple sweater last night at 11:45 p.m.; yay for me! That leaves only one of my UFOctober official projects unfinished (and sadly untouched), although I did think about it. I'll give the full tally on Friday.

So it's time for the next drawing! Post a blog entry featuring your final UFOctober progress list. Please list each item and clearly note its status - In Progress, Finished, Trashed, etc. Leave a comment on THIS POST with a link to your entry post. Photos are a total bonus - we want to see your work! - but not required for entry. Your entry post and comment must be finished by midnight (your local time) Sunday, November 4. Winner will be determined by random draw.

Monday is a big work day for me, so I'll probably draw sometime on Tuesday and post by Wednesday.

The winner of the second drawing will receive their choice of two balls of Knit Picks Essential superwash sock yarn in WINNER'S CHOICE of color! AND a $10 Gift Certificate to Knit Picks! (And if you pick Peacock Multi, you *could* get your yarn much sooner; just sayin'.)

(Although Knit Picks is my favorite online yarn store, they are not affiliated with the contest or with UFOctober.)

I have been catching up on your posts and enjoyed seeing your UFO progress. That's so excellent! Now you can all start new things with no guilt. Will you keep going after November with the remaining UFOs?
