Count me in! Just a thought... how many stitches wide/high is a dishcloth? I've been coming up with charts lately and I'm sure I could come up with something....

Thank you all for joining! Won't this be fun?

I'm all for us taking over our KH chatroom that night. I'll sign on at 11:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, and stay in the chatroom until 3:30 AM EST.

We can post photos of our progress, as well as our finished dishcloths in this discussion thread.

Patterns are located at http://dragonwingarts.com/free-patterns/

Enjoy!! There are two versions- basic and detailed. Basic says "New Year KAL, Knitting Help, 2008", detailed says "KH, 2008 New Year KAL" with fireworks, a martini glass and a snowflake. Both are 40 stitches square (had trouble with the 34/36 sts getting it to fit)... you may want to add three rows of border on each side if you choose.

The pattern info can also be found on Ravelry at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/dragonwing-arts

Let me know what you think!!!!

I'm an old knitter (more than 50 years of it) but new to the forum, and way down the list for admittance to Ravelry. I'd love to play along with the New Year's Eve KAL as we won't be going anywhere (too old and to sensible to want to drive anyplace on NY eve). I loved your blog and the gorgeous shawls. Is there any way for someone who can't get on the Ravelry site now to be able to look at the patterns?
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi knitabit!
The first link above works - it is not on Ravelry. Let us know if you have trouble opening it.

I just put the ravelry link so people could add it to their ravelry queue as a reminder. The actual pattern is on my website

Oh boy! A perfect first chart pattern! I printed the chart and now am not sure how to read it. Is it left to right and are the dark squares another color or purl stitches... sorry for the ignorance
