I think I'll join in with you all.... I've never done a KAL before, though found the threads interesting and wanted to try, but was busy with the mini-sock project for the troops and didn't have time.
I'm still working on some Christmas knitting projects right now, but should be good to go come January to participate in this KAL... I think it will be fun and exciting to join you.
I like the modern log cabin pattern and will probably do that. I have a lot of stash that needs to be used up and can donate the finished blanket to the homeless veterans' shelter I do knitting for or the Red Cross or someone... unless a friend or family member sees it first and wants it! It looks like a fairly simple pattern and pretty mindless knitting for the most part... right up my alley... especially after the busy holidays!
Count me in!
