This is a continuation of the original Central Park Hoodie KAL started by Christy. Christy has been blessed with some fantastic work and personal opportunities and the original KAL will soon be shut down. After contacting her to express my interest, she graciously granted me permission to continue the KAL.

Once I receive your request, I will sign you up as a team member and email you the log-in information. Send email to jrberry63 at woh dot rr dot com (also appears in the sidebar). Please put CPH KAL in the Subject line and include your blog URL (if you have one) and your name as you'd like to have it appear in the KAL Members list.
