Curiosity- what is KITH?

Recommended Posts

As a newer member-

I've searched, and found multiple KITH threads... found some awesome work.


But I've been unsuccessful in finding exactly what the KITH is about. What it stands for, etc.


I'm guessing It stands for 







? Can somebody explain the parameters and idea behind it for us newbies?

We call it Knife in the Hat, that is, you take one out and put one in.  The basic idea is we decide on a theme for the build, which is generally pretty broad, then people sign up and do their build.  Then when all is done one of the admins takes the names and pairs them.  You send off what you built to it's new home, and you get something from another maker for your own.


It's fun, it lets you stretch a bit, it build community.

Clear enough?

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Thank you sir for that. I read through several of the threads, such as the cubic inch, some of the earlier ones... and was trying to determine if it was a friendly competition, a charity type situation, or ...? Lol.


Someday perhaps, I'll get to join in!

What's stopping you now?

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
