indecent proposal :)

i have an idea for a future kal (maybe the one after this one, or the one after that): what if *we* were the designers of the patterns we knitted? i don't mean every participant designs her own, just that the patterns all have to be designed by participants? i know that there are professional designers among us, but there are also people who are amateur designers or people like me who've always wanted to try their hand at designing. i have ideas about what's flattering and have an idea for a pattern; this would be a great catalyst for me to actually implement it into a pattern. we would nominate them and vote on them the same as always.
what do you think?

Even if this doesn't ever get picked up by the SKC, I would love to do a design-along. Let me know if you want to start one up, and I could totally help.

This is a great idea! Another "themed" knit along! I love it! I'll mention it in a future post so that all the "in house" designers have plenty of time to get their designs typed and proofed!

I really like your idea. I vote we try it out. Maybe do it once or twice a year?
