2017 BOO CHALLENGE

2+0+1+7 shawls to complete the challenge made up of –
Two 2017 MKAL knits, 
Zero other designers – they have to be Boos to qualify, 
One triangular shawl and 
Seven other Boo shawls/items of the knitters choice.

All shawls must be full size shawls, not child size or doll size, and they should be as in the pattern (i.e. no turning shawls/scarves into tutus etc).
Everything must be started on or after 1st January 2017 (UK time should you want to cast on on the dot) and finished and blocked and photographed by midnight 31st December 2017, again UK time). Spot prizes will be drawn during the first week of January 2018 and all knitters will be notified in the 2017 Boo Challenge thread.  
The above placeholder can be used for projects yet to be started but it would be lovely if you can put your finished shawl as your front photograph as soon as your glamour shots are taken.  
There will be at least two new MKALs in 2017 as well as new patterns for both the Boos for Beginners and Into the Night Collections so you don’t need to fill everything in right away just remember your post number and come back to update as and when. The thread will be locked at midnight UK time on 31st December 2017 so don’t leave anything to the last minute.
Of course, don’t think you have to stop at ten shawls! There will be a prize for the knitter who completes the most Boos in the year but you must post them all in this thread carrying on from Seven to … the world is your oyster! Shawls knit in the monthly KALs will be eligible to be included in this challenge and though Moderators and Test Knitters can join in the fun they won’t be eligible for prizes.
There is a Submission Thread to keep track of your projects and there is also a CHAT THREAD where you can plan, chat and show off your yarns/beads etc until your heart is content!
