  1. Needles at the ready! I am in with Nordic Trail. Thanks! In the past I have been told that when your father traveled, I just sat in a chair and knit anyway, so I need to fulfill that stereotype. ;-)

  2. What luck! I’m already doing one sweater KAL, but that project is almost done. I printed the pattern for my sister’s Christmas gift (Malpeque: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/malpeque) just this morning and was wondering to myself if you guys would be doing the KAL again! I wish I could knit with you in person too!

  3. Nordic Trail will be a perfect christmas present! Thanks for getting me started.

  4. What perfect timing–I started working out the math for a sweater vest this morning! My husband wants a sweater that looks like this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/160935058063?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_457wt_1161
    I am using “Analog” (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/analog) for stitch counts and sizing while I “fake it ’til I make it” on the rest, haha! I’ll try to take good notes and publish them. Rav ID: nmujillybean

  5. Hi, I love Nordic Trail and will give it a whirl. I have been in a knitting rut lately and I’m hoping this KAL will end it! RAV name: protoknits

  8. I am a beginner knitter. I have been working on an entrelac baby blanket for a friend, and I feel like my speed and tension has been getting better. I’m interested in the Dressage and Nidden, patterns, but not sure if they are out of my league? My Mum is great at knitting, so I can always ask her for help, but happy to take advice on which one would be easier for me to go with.

    • Dressage will be easier in my opinion! It looks like other users on Ravelry rate Dressage easier than Nidden as well. I will be knitting Dressage for the knitalong too so if you have any questions you can always feel free to email me :) I think you’ll be just fine and should give it a try!

  9. I need to get on to cardigans and away from shawls, so thanks for the prompting. I think i will be knitting Panel Jacket by Carol Lapin.

  10. Great time to get started…I’ll be knitting Reverb by Tanis Lavallee. Super excited to get going!
