"Let's take a trip together/ Headlong into the irresistable orbit"

I've just changed the date on my August 5th post to bump it up to the top, in case anyone has missed it...

Hi All--it's just another update from your QKAL hostess.

I've received a few emails lately asking about the list of participants, so I'll explain. It's incomplete. Please don't worry if you don't see your name listed on it. If you are concerned about whether or not you are properly registered in the knit-along, all you have to do to check is log in at www.blogger.com and see if the QKAL is listed in your list of blogs of the "dashboard" page.

At the moment, we have seventeen members and there are four invitations pending. I'm quite excited that we have so many people along for this, and I'm really looking forward to reading about and seeing your beautiful creations.

Personally, I am still in the Yukon at the moment, and my internet access is not such that I have the time to update the participants list. I can deal with requests for invitations, and any other questions you might have, via email (nottheactress AT hotmail DOT com), but anything beyond that is going to have to wait another couple of weeks. I finish work up here around the 18th of August, and then I will be spending some time travelling--I want to go up to Inuvik in the North West Territories but of course the guy who owns the car is a little flaky (which maybe is a sign that heading out on hundreds of kilometres of rough, deserted highway with him isn't such a good idea, but oh well--he's a fascinating guy)--before flying to Vancouver and ferrying over to Salt Spring Island, BC, on the 25th. Then, on the 31st, I'll be taking off--with a trailer load of chattels--for my new apartment in Edmonton and expect to spend that long weekend getting a brand-spankin'-new iBook, filling my cupboards with Kraft Dinner and artfully arranging my stash, all in preparation for starting my master's degree on September 6th. In short, I'm a busy girl. But I should have time when I am on Salt Spring to update the participants list, and I do sincerely assure you that it will be updated and everything I can do to get the QKAL off to a good start will be done before the cast-on date of Sept. 5th.

And after the cast-on date, I'll be all over this thing like white on rice.

Thanks for your patience and your participation.

I can't seem to send email to that address. It keeps bouncing. I want to make sure I'm on the list. Pat
