UPDATE to Hanami KAL

Hey everyone! We are so excited that we have so much interest. We're almost at 60 knitters for the KAL.

A couple things to let you know:
1. We will do the KAL over 8 weeks starting in September (we'll let you know the exact start date soon). J and I have the number of rows/week figured out. So, we'll emulate the Mystery Stole idea, but it won't be a mystery. It will be approximately 60 rows or so every week. Very do-able for most we hope.

2. We will have 2 prizes over the course of the KAL. The first prize will be at week 4 and the second prize will be at week 8. Your name will get put in the draw if you write a post on the blog or if you comment on someone else's post. Each time you write something, your name will go in the draw. I think Mary in VA is currently our most active writer, so she will have a little head start. The prizes will be of use to lace knitters!

Again, if you haven't received your invite, please email us at: hanami.knit.a.long@gmail.com. Also, check your spam filter in case it's ended up there.

For all those doing MS3, have fun with the extra big clue and to every else, happy knitting!
T.

I may not have written much, but I've been sending folks your way. :(

I guess I'll have to let go and be my chatty old self here. *snerk*

Thanks to both of you for hosting this KAL. It makes me feel better to know I will have company and impetus when I pick up my Hanami again.

Yea! T and J! Thanks, Chanda

Yikes! I can't believe I was chattiest when you posted this. That's definately not my typical style - I'm more like the stereotype of the lurker. Though it looks like I have a lot to catch up on since I was last here so that's probably changed!

This is very cool! Thanks for coordinating something like this! I really enjoy MS3 (my first lace project) and would love to get in on this!!!
