Bo needs to count her sheep ~ Melissa

 
Good morning!  I feel a bit like Miss Peep today and want to gather the flock together for a head count, please!  This knitalong is our largest by far ~ very exciting ~ and since I do the behind the scenes managing I'd like to take a poll and see where we're all at as far as project choice and who has chosen to blog / who would just like to use the comment section.  I believe as of this morning there are nineteen knitters participating and fifteen of us are blogging.  So, here's what I would love from each of you (I promise ~ it won't take you away from your knitting for more than a minute or two!).  If all of us could please comment to this post with the following:
 
name / pattern choice / blog or just comment
 
I would really appreciate it.  I need to keep the bloggers to a manageable number for me ~ I don't know what that is but I'm thinking no more than twenty total?  Once we reach that number, blogging rights for the knitalong will close to any latecomers but new flock members are still welcome to play along using the comment section.  We will never turn anyone away from joining us, but as for the blogging...holy smokes, I'm flabbergasted as to how many folks have jumped on board this year!
 
And one final bit of housekeeping : if those of you who have a ravelry project opened for this kal could add the tag 2015floodsflock I would love it!  Makes it easy to find everyone in one spot ~ just click on your tag in your project and everyone will appear together on the screen for easy viewing ~ sound good?  Thanks again!

    2. you are so cute, Steph ~ I'm trying to round up a few stragglers and then I think I'll find a nice meadow to set you all free for awhile while I sit on a hill overseeing and knitting away ...

      not that I'm not getting a bit of knitting in already :)
