Sign me up for the Holiday KAL, always need another reason to knit.

Are we using the same yardage requirements as the 12/12/12?

O.K., Duh, If I had taken the time to read, I would have seen the rules for the Holiday Kal are the same as the 12/12/12.

Hope everyone joins in again.

I'm interested in participating, but I'm not sure if I'll have time this fall to do much more than the 12/12/12 KAL. I'd like to sign up just in case, though.

Count me in! I need some motivation to actually finish all the stuff I need to start working on soon.

Angie K said...

OK--I am in again! I have a few presents to knit--too bad my sweater doesn't count tho! :D

Hunmmmm, maybe third time's a charm? I keep signing up for these things and then not getting anything done. Well, I'm sitting here typing in all optimism that *this* time I'll at least have one submission!!!

Thanks for keeping me honest and my needles flying!

Sign me up! Hopefully I'll get a few more projects done as well as my 12m/12p/12boy projects now. It's good incentive for sure!

kadezmom said...

I'm going to keep right on signing up, sooner or later my productivity has to kick it up, right???

Hey, any suggestions for 2 balls of mini mochi? I've decided I don't want socks or a scarf.

Thanks for being patient with me!

kadezmom said...

Oh maaaaaan, I'm already signed up. Do I need help or what?!?!

Angie K said...

Crud--I have Holiday projects that I posted with my 12/12/12 project. Do you want me to go back and make separate posts for them?

adrienne said...

hi angie! if you would, please. you know my track record for november... just sayin'

Angie K said...

OK Adrienne! I went back through my Holiday 3 KAL posts and really only had to fix 1 of them. I had the start of one project in with the finish of my Oct 12/12/12 project. Everything should be hunky-dorey now with my 4 projects. :D Sorry for screwing it all up!
