    Please note: I added a brush and added many more colors to the palette for this year - hopefully that will aid in adding some more variety for your knitting. – Yaakov Ellis Dec 9 '19 at 9:33
  • @YaakovEllis so there is a Winter Bash 2019 Knitting site? Where is it? Is it disabled for those who said "I hate hats"? – Mari-Lou A Dec 9 '19 at 10:06

    @curious You need only to rotate your smartphone. See: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/339936/… – Cody Gray Dec 9 '19 at 21:02
  • @CodyGray Argh. I tried rotating only after activating the desktop site it seems (which didn't work, obviously). I did most of my submission on mobile in portrait mode O_o – curious Dec 9 '19 at 21:09

    If someone knit me a Monica-reminding hat I would "wear" it. – einpoklum Dec 10 '19 at 15:17

  • @VerNicksaysReinstateMonica: That's a nice initiative, but I don't think you would see anything other than the hat if I scaled it down to fit on my avatar's head. – einpoklum Dec 12 '19 at 16:52
  • @einpoklum-reinstateMonica This user for example just loaded it as an avatar :) – Ver Nick Dec 12 '19 at 16:55

2019 trans symbole and gay flag

I'll let you guess the "hidden" flag ^^


And here is a gif showing how the knitting was done:

    @SuperJade To be honest, I had a very hard time drawing that first circule and was terrified to make an edit and lose it. Thus, all the savings ^^ – BelovedFool Dec 9 '19 at 19:44

Poor penguin.. He's alone in the snow for Christmas :(

Penguin

  • It is summer in the Southern Hemisphere (where penguins live), so it can only be in Antarctica (cold enough). Or perhaps some high mountain ranges (but will you find penguins there?). – P.Mort. - forgot Clay Shirky_q Dec 17 '19 at 6:38
  • @PeterMortensen It is winter on Stack Exchange too :) – Ver Nick Dec 17 '19 at 9:38
  • Good point. I think penguins live in Antarctica.... I don't know XD – Amy Dec 18 '19 at 23:18

    While not my team, I can't help but feel happy for the 49ers to finally come out of their years long hole this season and for Garoppolo to finally be able to show his worth after last year's unfortunate injury and after the Patriots threw him away as a Brady successor. So definitely a +1! – Christian Rau Dec 9 '19 at 17:58
  • @ChrissaysReinstateMonica : yeah, some happy and some sad years during the Colin K's era and "the event"... – OldPadawan Dec 9 '19 at 18:03

Inspired by a beautiful piece of art by @iLuvLogix that reminded me of hours spent playing (both games amongst many others), I knitted this one. Can you remember/guess? If needed, hint is below...

People were knitting on different topics. I made a random one:Random Knitting

Since this is random therefore you can use your imagination to see in it whatever you want!

Title: The future of (Meta?) Stack Exchange!

Inspired by Pierre Soulages and the continuous efforts of SE Inc. to make this place a different place.

(and yes, Soulages uses different kinds of black paint, alas, not available to me here)

  • Basically just jdrupal's with a different colour. – faintsignal Dec 16 '19 at 13:20
  • @faintsignal But the point of view is totally different. Isn't that what art is about?! But sure, that other user got my upvote, too. – GhostCat Dec 16 '19 at 14:18
  • Totally opaque? Or fog of war? – P.Mort. - forgot Clay Shirky_q Dec 17 '19 at 7:01

Last year's knitting was a Unicorn at Night.

This year's knitting is titled "Moonbow":

rainbow at night = Moonbow
