Announcing the Do Something New KAL!!

I decided to start a new Knit-A-Long. This will be my first time hosting one, but I think it will be a whole lot of fun!

The Do Something New KAL is perfect for all of you who have nice, long To Do lists full of knitting projects you've always wanted to try, especially those involving new styles or methods that you're just itching to learn. The main rules are that your projects must be either knitted or involve knitting in some way and that you have never successfully tried it before. Want to try knitting Continental, spinning or dying yarn, felting, intarsia, making your first pair of socks, Entralac, cables, using some of that weird-looking yarn you have in your stash but you're afraid of, or just want to take a crack at that one pattern that has been on your mind forever? Well, join up and give it a whirl. You even get credit if you mess it up beyond recognition so long as you do try something new and finish it!

It starts August 1st and last until January 31st. At first, I had planned to only do three months, but then I thought this would be fun to have going over the holidays, too, since a lot of us are on knitting overtime then. And it should go thru January because that's when we actually get time to use all those cool new knitting tools and toys we get as gifts!

If I still haven't convinced you to sign up or at least go take a look at the page about it, let me mention that there are going to be prizes! Oh yes, I'm dangling free stuff in front of you! Come on, it'll be fun!
