Knitting Pattern a Day 2008 Calendar
My friend who lives in my building said he picked up a package from the mailman for me, and I thought I must be getting really carried away with the online ordering because I didn't remember ordering anything like he described (a book, he guessed). When I opened it I discovered it was the Knitting Pattern a Day 2008 calendar that I have a pattern in, and this was my free copy! So exciting! I'm April 21st, Earth Day

I think I saw some familiar patterns in there. I swear I recognized a dog, Howie. Did anyone else get one yet?

Oh, right, my pattern is for fingerless mittens with ruffles. As seen here:

Wow, those fingerless mittens are really cute!!! I like them. I have a question though. Can those be made using the magic loop method? I don't use DPN's unless I am forced to do so. I'm just wondering because I would like to try them after I finish my first pair of socks.

Congratulations! I love those calendars. Last year, I gifted my sister (Shandeh) with one and, of course, bought one for myself. This year, there was only the Stitch 'n Bitch page-a-day calendar when I shopped. I got each one, but... meh.

ETA: So, I'll be on the lookout for the one that includes your pattern!

Thanks! I've never done a project on magic loop. But I don't see why you couldn't do it magic loop if you can transfer the pattern to that. Can ML do very small diameter. You will need a small diameter circle for the thumb.

Julie, I didn't hear back from them, either, but I guessed that that's just the way they roll.

Winterblues, do let us know about the crochet calendar, too. I can't remember if I submitted anything there or not. I think I might have.

ooooh that's so cool!

My sister has a pattern in the crochet calender for 2008.. I'm wondering if anybody knows if they come out at the same time as the knitting calenders? They also asked her if she wanted to be in the 2009 calender!! Lucky thing...
