This year's Winter Bash got us great hat challenges, but it also gave us a very nice tool for knitting on the main Winter Bash site.

Is there a challenge related to this knitting tool?

Here is my knitting and it would be amazing if you could share yours too.

    Thanks for creating this question. It gave me more incentive for fun. :-) – Super Jade Dec 12 '18 at 6:22

    Looks like they intended this to become the annual rep fest. – ShaWiz Dec 12 '18 at 7:24

    @ShadowWizard Well, it could be a great way to unlock some hats that require putting a bit of effort into writing (or, well, knitting in this case) an answer. Opportunities don't always present themselves throughout the network, so .... I kinda like this question :) – Tim Post Dec 12 '18 at 14:39
  • @TimPost that is true. Guess no chance for actual swag for top answers? :) – ShaWiz Dec 12 '18 at 14:42

    @ShadowWizard There ... might be something in the works. I can not confirm nor deny any things for any things. But there might be things, or other things. But the thing is, the things are the way they are because of other things, so we'll just have to thing positively and see. – Tim Post Dec 12 '18 at 14:48

    damn, people are good with a mouse... I was happy with my motorcycle helmet but now it just feels inadequate imgur.com/a/6qZmBUi – treyBake Dec 14 '18 at 16:03
  • Thank you for this. My exemplary knitting ability has earned me a privilege. – pushkin Dec 14 '18 at 18:08
  • Lol, through this, I designed a StackOverflow Character lololololol the ideas people get – Eleeza Dec 14 '18 at 21:17
  • @Rob You're welcome. Continue to post such answers as a part of other contests too. Please try to stay active on meta after WB also. – Nog Shine Dec 18 '18 at 5:16
  • @NogShine - I've put up a couple more animated knitting answers, what we really need for next time is some more colors and vertical resolution. The ability to upload .gifs to the knitting machine would sure save a lot of effort, my last entry is 70 frames. I lurk in The Tavern and am quite active in CHQ. – Rob Dec 18 '18 at 6:56
  • This is a fun question! – Eran Dec 18 '18 at 8:46
  • @rob someone actually did an userscript for adding more colors to the ui, but I think that still has the issue that the underlying logic doesn't really take those color in consideration. I expect that importing a picture with more colors than the original ones wouldn't produce the expected result. – SPArchaeologist Dec 18 '18 at 9:27

    Evergreen meme. Works for any contest. – Nog Shine Dec 18 '18 at 5:52
  • I see this earned you a hat! See, 6-8 does everything. – Nog Shine Dec 18 '18 at 5:53
  • @NogShine but it will still take 6-8 week for cheesy swag :D – Ankit Sharma Dec 18 '18 at 5:58
