12 months/12 projects/12 balls of yarn

a new year! (can't believe that we are going double digits...just seems like we were worried about y2k. yikes!) and a new yearlong kal! knit at least one project for each month of 2010 and you will be entered into a drawing to win 12 balls of yarn! there will be random drawings during the year from all the projects finished. we are also working on adding a twist to the prizes.

the rules will be very similar to the ones for the 52 week challenge kal. projects cannot be started until january 1st (of course, i am a softy so may allow a new year's eve start for all of you who like to bring in the new year doing your most favorite thing! knitting and champagne!!! what more can you ask for?!!!).

so let me know if you want to play! leave a comment on this post or email me at carefreekal at gmail dot com and i will add you to the list.

if you are new to the blog, please email me for an invitation to the blog and we will get you set up to play!

eta: projects do not have to be completed in the same month that you start them. however, you cannot start any projects until january (or maybe dec 31st-if i decide to be really nice)

12/22: i have everyone listed who has contacted me to join this kal. if i am missing your name, please let me know!

12/31/2009!: YOU CAN START YOUR PROJECTS TODAY! YEAH!!!!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Wonderful! I will begin on New Year's Eve with Margaritaville on the needles.
And more CPY projects, too. Sounds like a fun year of knitting ahead and a very generous contest prize. :)
Happy Knitting year, everyone!

LOve to be part of this. Keeps me motivated for sure. So, just to be clear...do you have to have the project you start in that month, completed in that month, or just have 12 projects completed in 12 months?

Thanks, Jill
