2011 Annual New Year's Eve Party - Prizes, Fun!
Hi everyone!

Every year, for New Year's Eve, I host a party in our forum to bring in the New Year. This Friday evening, December 31st, our online party will last 4 hours (from 11:30 PM to 3:30 AM, Eastern US time).
Happy New Year 2011!!

The most exciting part of our celebration will be PRIZES!!

Since I have been blessed with such an excellent collection of knitting books, I'll be offering some of them as prizes.

To be eligible for the prizes, just send me a PM (private message), or post a reply to this discussion.
Prizes will be given at 12:00 and 12:30 for each time region (Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific). My hubby will draw names out of a hat to determine the winners. The prizes will be random, so it's the luck of the draw what you'll get! (Prizes will be listed here this week.)

Winners do not have to be online at the time of the drawing. I will notify you by private message in the forum if you are a winner.

In addition to our prizes, we will be knitting a 2011 KH Forum memento together. This year, I've designed a large drink sleeve for our project. This will keep our hands warm while we enjoy our favorite iced coffee drinks or milkshakes.


If you want to join us in knitting the drink sleeve, just bring some size 7 knitting needles, and worsted weight yarn in 5 contrasting colors. Here is the pattern. The gauge for our project is 18 stitches over 4 inches (10 cm).

Last year, we had a wonderful time during our party, talking nonsense, knitting together, and sharing stories about our New Year celebrations all over the world.

I can't wait to see you all again this year!

I just posted the pattern for our coffee cozy on my knitting blog. I hope that some of you will join me in making one!

This sounds like a lot of fun. I'll try to be present sometime after 8:30 p.m. Pacific time. At least I'll still be awake then!

That does sound like a cool idea but I won't be able to join you guys 'cause I'm going out. FINALLY got a babysitter - so we can't pass up this chance! I wouldn't mind knitting up that cozy though!

I'll be here as always but don't think I can stay up that late, being on GMT and all. I'll drop by the discussion earlier on though if anyone is around.

I do not celebrate New years Eve any more since that date has sad memories for me. My mother passed away on Dec 31 2003 so I do not feel very festive at that time. I was very close to her and so I miss her very much.
