I'm playing again! You can take my name out of the drawing for winners tho--I just won something with the Holiday or Not KAL so give someone else an extra chance!

Cathy said...

I'm in! It's good motivation to actually FINISH projects - something I was not too good at in 2010!! :-)

Julie said...

I'm in

peacockmom said...

Yes! Looking forward to lots of knitting and inspiration from the group in 2011. Happy New Year to all of you--

2011 is a prime number. Could the name reflect that? I know that a good name is triggered by many little things.

YoYo SockSister said...

I'm in and looking forward to another year of wonderful knitting.

jardinrouge said...

Yes, I wanna play again! I agree with Cathy, this KAL is a wonderful nudge to ensure that I finish projects. I have a tendency to be swayed when something pretty and new comes along, and sometimes projects can languish miserably. LOL!!

Breien in Lansingerland said...

I am looking forward to play along in 2011 ;)

kadezmom said...

I'm in. This is the only thing that has kept me knitting thought the insanity over the past year, and I know it's done me a world of good. Thanks for keeping me on my toes!

Soxnitter said...

This will be my first time joining the group. I hope it will encourage me to get more done!

maz said...

I am back again and look forward to play along the rules for 2011.
Let´s have some fun knitting.

adrienne said...

I like "Prime Time KAL"!

jdhforjc said...

Hi ladies, I am in! Adrienne I will email you too.

peacockmom said...

I like Prime Time KAL, too. Very good suggestion. :)

jaerrt said...

I thought I posted to this already, but I guess not. I would love to do the 12 month KAL again. I had fun and it's a challenge sometimes to choose and finish big projects, but a fun challenge.

Jill (jaerrt on Rav)

p.s. Primetime sounds good to me!

MLJ1954 said...

Sign me up. Maybe this year I'll do better. I am very impressed with all those that did a project every month.

Maybe in 2011 I'll be one of them. Here's hoping!

Radka said...

I'd like to join the kal. Hope this year I'll get even closer to having 12 entries.

Jan said...

I'll admit I forgot about being in this group until the email reminded me (my bad!). Count me in for January, my project will be to knit a pair of dish cloths for my mother.

hiukkaknits said...

I am very excited. Count me in! Too many patterns to choose from but I will be ready.

jan!

don't forget that you need to use a minimum of 300 yds for your set of dishtowels!

ikkinlala said...

Count me in, please!

Deb said...

I am looking forward to the 2011 KAL. It gave me the incentive to finish things and not let them languish on the needles!

carol said...

Please count me in as well. I need these KALs to keep my UFO numbers down!

jdhforjc said...

yeah!

YoYo SockSister said...

In case you are still trying to decide on a name, I love Prime Time KAL.....

I would love to join! I sent email but am not sure if I have to leave a comment here as well or its one or the other. My Ravelry ID is Sage71 Thanks and Happy New Year to everyone!

Kate said...

I think "prime time KAL" is a great name.

I'm not sure I'll be able to do this again, but I guess put me on and we'll see what happens. :)
