Announcements for 2008

Big changes over here at Baad Medicine, Big Changes.

First off, notice our cleaned up sidebar. Christmas sock tally down, and new sock tally up. Our goal is to knit 24 pairs in 2008. We're not that crazy as those 52 pair plunge people....we can't make that kind of commitment. We're only about half that crazy, hence the 24 pairs. Let us know if you're up for the challenge!!

Next up, our new KAL. We took all your responses to our poll into consideration and came to the conclusion of something completely different (if you know us, you really won't be surprised by this...). We'll be knitting the Cozy pattern from Knitty. We got yarn, we got pattern, we're ready to go. We'll set up a KAL in Ravelry this time as opposed to a separate blog. So if you're not in Ravelry yet, quick, get on the list so you can join us. We'll give you a few days to sign up before we start.

That's about all...our next big undertaking is to revamp our header. Our dear friend Andi has agreed to help but we need to do a photoshoot before then.

We're looking forward to good knitting in 2008....

You guys are evil! I love that wrap! Now I *have* to go yarn shopping. Best get going on the hats if I'm going to join you on the KAL, never done on before!

I LOVE that pattern. But 8 skeins? 8? Hmm. I'm going to have to think about it. Perhaps my knitting ADHD will have subsided by then.

Can't wait to see the results of the photo shoot.

Hey, Andi! T. and I picked up some Briggs & Little sport from Bonnie. You only need 2 skeins according to Cdnknitchik.

You know you wanna...

Ooooooooooooooooooh! I'm psyched! I'm up for the sock goal too. If you start them late Dec 2007 and finish in 2008 does that count?

Catknip - we're of the don't ask don't tell variety - whatever works for you.

Amanda said...

Argh, I don't need another KAL - but can I resist?

Denise Copeland said...

I have a question. The dimensions look like rectangle but the photo makes it look like a triangular shawl. Can you help me with this?

I hope this question does not eliminate me from joining the group...

Denise Copeland said...

Sorry for the last comment. I did a little googling and now it is perfectly clear. I should have done that before I asked the question.

I would not blame you if you disqualified me or moved the KAL to an unknown location for such a question.

Of course I like to join you both with the sock challenge and the new KAL. I am a member of a Sock club here in Sweden and we are going to knit 12 different sock patterns during 2008, so I only have to double that.
I am new in Ravelry and don´t know how it works yet. Hope to be able to join your KAL.
