I love your calendar but I would love for it to be a full-sized wall calendar... Any plans to "upsize" it for 2005?

Other than that, everything I have seen from Knitter's review and boutique has been first rate. Thanks for providing this venu to all of us.

I am a bit slow. What type of calendar are you talking about? Seems interesting.

She's talking about the Knitter's Review Year in Yarn calendar. We've been publishing it for several years now, and we sell it both in the KR Boutique and wholesale through about 130 shops. (Last year's calendar: http://knittersreview.com/goto.asp?goto=YY04)

The 2005 calendar has been printed and shipped to the bindery for cutting, folding and stapling. We're hoping for a release in about two weeks. I'm particularly fond of the cover picture, which you'll see as soon as we release it!

Covey, your feedback is very helpful. I've gotten mixed replies from people, some saying they enjoy the smaller size, others wishing for a larger size. Anybody else wish to comment on this one? The more feedback, the better.

I'd like more posters! I have the one "centerfold" from the first year calendar, but it would be nice to have more - you have such beautiful subjects, and you're really an impressive photographer...

That's a great idea! I'd love to see more yarn/sheep etc. posters. Particularly stuff to decorate my cube. My department head wasn't too pleased with my Disney motif--I scaled it back. I'd love to add me yarn stuff--Maybe I should decorate with yarn and needles.

I'd also like to see more computer wallpaper of yarn. I've got the one from Knit Picks at home, but I'm getting bored with it. At work, they took are creativity away from us when it comes to screen savers and wall paper--no screen savers and only corporate "branding" wallpaper. The next thing will be uniforms.

The calendar is beautiful and the photographs are soothing. I think you should add more balls of yarn in one picture to provide a more diverse image.

Thanks for the response, Clara. Can't wait to see the new one.

re: the posters --- yes yes yes!!!
Quilters are so lucky -- they have lots of beautiful calenders/posters. I'd love to see the same thing for knitting.

I prefer calendars to have lots of room in each day's "square" for writing appointments, birthdays and such. I also like small purse calendars. I have no use for anything in between those two sizes.

I love my small calendar for my office at work, but would LOVE a big one for home. The small one would melt away in the place I put my calendar. Let us know if you ever decide on a big one and I'll place my order for one of those too!

Yes Clara,it would be nice to have both the small & big calenders.For the ones who want one or the other.Or both. Even one for the car or pocketbook. I like to keep tract of Birthdays & stuff.So the big on is what I`d go for.And maybe the car-pocketbook one,Id consider.

I just thought of another suggestion on calenders.What I buy every year is a desk calender that you tear the page off everyday on my coffee table.That`s how I keep tract of my appointment & stuff.Something with a pattern or suggestions on knitting or something on knitting idea.I remember buying one in the yarn shop a couple of years ago that is permanent( you can use it over & over again,because it doesn`t have a year on it.They have pattern ideas (the picture included).It`s called "365 Knitting stitches a year" perpetual calender.you just flip the page over.I can`t write in it,since it can be ysed ove again,but I slip a note or bills on the days that I need to remember.Just a suggestion.
