I've completely dropped the ball on the upcoming anniversary of our annual New Year's knitalong here at Girls in Sheep Clothing. I haven't had a chance to even touch bases with Kelli about whether anyone would like to knit with us this time around...it will be our seventh annual event if anyone is interested? I've had a few people drop hints that they might like to play but I'm not sure I'm reading you folks right. So....
I'm going to just go gangbusters here and throw out a few ideas ~ jump into the comments if you're interested in joining and if any of these designs appeal to you (maybe list your top 2). I'll give everyone's comments some thought over the next week and hopefully by Sunday we'll have come to some common goal and I'll let everyone know what's been decided so there's still some time to get supplies together before we start.
Tradition had me scouring Brooklyn Tweed patterns for ideas and here is what I've come up with ~ I tried to find a good mix of designs :
1 - Stonecrop (a rectangular lace shawl)
2 - Tilt (a square lace shawl)
3 - Girasole (a circular lace shawl)
4 - Ashby (a textured triangular shawl)
5 - Ludlow (a rectangular textured shawl)

Here's the skinny cut and pasted from last year if you're new to the blog and curious about what we're up to:
"Our official cast on date is January 1st so you have plenty of time to gather your materials (and probably change your mind about your yarn choice at least a dozen times). As usual, our knitalongs are stress free ~ no deadlines (we still have one person finishing up last year's kal...that would be me!) & blogging along is encouraged but not required. If you'd like to join us, leave a comment below ~ if you've knitted with us before, you know the routine. If this will be your first time, there's a tutorial on how to be a guest blogger (thanks again, Kelly!) once I've sent you your official invitation to participate."
Okay ~ jump in and let's chat!
