25 Days of Diana!

Diana Sullivan that is.  If you haven't heard of Diana Sullivan then you need to go promptly over to her blog.  After you've read my personal challenge that is.  I've included links to her blog.  She is a great advocate for machine knitting.  She is very generous and makes free videos on how to do many techniques on knitting machine.  She also sells a few of her techniques on DVD.  I have bought two.  My favorite to date is the Entrelac video.  To be fair it's the only one I've viewed; hense, this challange.

I've decided on a challenge for myself.  In an effort to get better at using my knitting machines I'm going to do something on Diana's blog everyday for 25 days.  I'd also like to get a few things knitted for Christmas.  This way I'll get to kill two birds with one stone.  Oh that sounds terrible no birds will be harmed during my 25 days of machine knitting.
Diana Sullivan has great tutorials and great projects on her "Diana natters on..." Blog.  A lot of them on video on YouTube.  I keep threatening to do more of them and don't make the time.  Check out Diana's YouTube Channel on YouTube.  It's called Dianaknits.

Starting on November 26th, because who are we kidding do I really have time during the week before Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is at my house and I have cooking and cleaning to do.  This year I'm ONLY having 12 people over.  I usually have 25 or more.  Though it seems like a more relaxing event the same food needs to be made.  Why stress myself out.

The challenge will end on December 20th.  Plenty of time to weave ends in and get things wrapped for Christmas.

I think I'll use this week to sort of come up with a plan on where I want to start.  So, many interesting things to do over at Diana's place.
