Hi All -
This is your friendly neighborhood hostess here, Keri and I just wanted to check in with you all. I know a lot of you are wondering what's going to happen now that the end of November is coming so quickly and this was our appointed end-time for the knit along.
I've had a lot of people contact me off list and let me know how much fun they're having and how much they would like this to continue and become a sort of "Fingerless Mitts for all Seasons" Knitalong (which is a very cute title by the way! =))
I have to say I'm of two minds about this - on one hand I'm glad that people are having so much fun and want to continue. On the other I would love to have this knit along be something that we all could look forward to each fall and we could continue on each year. So basically, there are two options that I would love your feedback about-
1) Make this a fingerless mitt for all season knitalong and keep this going year-round.
2) Extend the knitalong a bit and keep membership open to new members until the end of December. After December, if you're a member I would encourage you to continue posting all your fingerless mitt projects, I just won't be adding new people until next fall when we start up again in September.
Anyhow, so there's a poll on the right-hand side of the blog, please take a second and vote yes, no or maybe and leave any comments or feedback here - I welcome any and all things you have to say.
And on another note- I still have to have the final contest, and this one will be about finished projects. If you've posted a finished project to the blog by November 30th you'll be eligible for the prize. (It will be a good one I just haven't figured it out yet) So keep your eyes peeled for a bigger contest post to go up later in the week and wrap up any UFO's you may have that are almost done! =)
Happy fingerless knitting!
