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. – Shadow The Princess Wizard 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? :) – Shadow The Princess Wizard 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

    What's with the shape of the knitting canvas? – j08691 Dec 12 '18 at 15:10

  • 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. – Hitodama Dec 18 '18 at 9:27

    @Laurel I see that now, can't unsee it. – WELZ Dec 12 '18 at 13:21

    @AndyD273 it's a freehand circle with an arrow pointing towards it. – WELZ Dec 13 '18 at 13:57

    @Laurel I think you mean a guy laying in a puddle of milk (actually, at that rate, it should be lying). Crucial word otherwise he is laying the puddle like a chicken would lay an egg... – NH. Dec 14 '18 at 15:14

I love trees, I love looking at them and I love drawing them. So, can you guess what I decided to knit?

Well, since other people have contributed their country's flag, I figured I'd try my hand at it as well.

It's... not exactly centered, but I blame that on the odd shape of the canvas.

Israeli flag

Here's a helpful thing telling you what not to do.

don't panic

With its eye-catching background, and encouraging message, having this on your towel will make you a true hoopy frood. Limited offer only.

(getting those diagonal lines took forever, though)

    please edit the second line without caps locks – Vickel Dec 28 '18 at 1:10
  • btw. use a transparent *.gif or *.png image the size should be 1190 x 442 pixel P.S.: if the image is transparent you can set first the knitting canvas to any other color – Vickel Dec 28 '18 at 1:16

    Foiled, alas, the city name immediately came to my head which was obviously incorrect because it's not the name of your country. But I recognized it! – Tim Post Dec 12 '18 at 19:28

Perhaps a bit of a Me2 but getting the proportions right required a bit of playing around with the GMIP...
