Hmm...okay, I'm very very intrigued, as I read almost exclusively mysteries. I'm just concerned that between my current WIPs and that little thing called my job, I won't have enough time to do additional projects. Very interested, but will have to think about it.

I hate to be a dummy, but just to be clear, one does not need to have a blog to join? I don't really have the need for one right now, so it is OK to just email back and forth?

Thanks!

And just to prove I'm a mystery fan, a new Miss Marple will be on my local PBS, Chicago time 9-10 p.m. Sunday night. [meow][meow]

That is correct. You just need to be registered with blogger. There are no mandatory demands of blogging here. I promise. Maybe some cajoling though. Or pleading.

I've got the same concerns. I usually try to incorporate the themes of several KALs into one WIPs. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

The knitted projects won't be mandatory anyway. I don't think I'll have the energy or the desire to police anyone into making sure they did a project. So you might want to join for the book forums. Just a thought!

What happened to KillerKnitalong? I went there this morning and no site! YIKES! Are we over so soon?? Did somebody kill us off? Who?

I've suggested that, maybe, when there is a busy month ahead, that maybe, we could use a movie in place of reading a book.

My library has copies of the Miss Marples with Margaret Rutherford available, and I think I have a book with a knitted coat that would emulate one of her outfits. (Will post name of book when I can find it in craft room.)

Wouldn't that be loverly?

Donna, I would imagine that the next step will be nominating books for the first month and then voting on them. Then we read and knit!
And Kadiddly, it doesn't have to be a big project. The idea is to come up with something that relates to the book, but it can be as small as a cover for a dagger *laughs* or as big as the knitted coat that Greyling is talking about. Everyone chooses their own project to knit according to their skills and time constraints. So don't let lack of time keep you away!

The Classics KAL has a theme (or era in the case of Knit the Classics) for each month so that the books nominated fit that theme. I think that makes it easier for nominating books. Also if you don't like that month's theme you can skip a month. I wouldn't have thought you would want to end up with the same type of book each month.
