  24. What fun! Definitely count me in! Will be joining the KAL in January but haven't yet decided which pattern or which yarn. After the houseguests go home and the Thanksgiving leftovers are dealt with (ham this year instead of turkey), I'll sit down with my high scientific eenie-meenie-minie-mo-amatic and try to come to a decision.
