Greetings From Your KAL Hostess

Well, Happy New Year, everyone, from your KAL hostess Jeanne B.! This is so exciting! We have 24 active members so far and six more have been sent invitations. I'm glad to see everyone chatting merrily away and sharing goodies.

I suppose I should update the progress on my own CPH. Ack! Stalled out! It's almost embarrassing to admit. Blame it on last-minute holiday knitting, which, by the way, I'm still finishing up *blush*. Right now, my CPH has four inches of ribbing and that's it. Do I count more points because I'm doing the fronts and back simultaneously on circulars? I plan to pick it up again before the end of the month. In the meantime, you all just keep having a good time and keep knitting away so I can live vicariously!

If anyone has questions or concerns about the KAL, you know where to find me.
