  2. What about an Olympics binge?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I think the Olympics is a good idea.

    I enjoyed the lace-weight challenge last summer. How about something that encourages trying a new technique or fiber?

  4. Doctor Who, Star Trek, Supernatural, Lucifer, Grimm, iZombie would all be fun for TV Shows.
    Movies that my daughter and I will watch over and over again include any of the Jurassic Park series, How to Train Your Dragon, or Alice in Wonderland / Through the Looking Glass.
    Admittedly, we are also gamers. I would love beyond measure to see things from Elder Scrolls, Assassin's Creed, or World of Warcraft, while she would beg me for any of these or Pokemon.

    1. I agree with Patricia! I would love any of these! Also being a gamer, I've toyed with the idea of designing a World of Warcraft anything, but can't decided what to make.

  5. I like the suggestions, cannot decide which one is the best. I was also thinking about something for the upcoming remake of Rocky Picture Horror Show!

  6. Star Trek, Supernatural, Orphan Black, Firefly, Japanese Manga, Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica

  7. I'm all for Gilmore Girls and Olympics, too! I also like the idea of a kid's show or movie with a kid-friendly product at the end. Pride and Prejudice? Or any Jane Austen movies/series. Orphan Black is excellent. I'd also be interested in something that is seasonal or for a holiday. Brat Pack movies in a fall or back-to-school type thing might be fun. I will miss the Downton knit along this year!

  8. How about Call the Midwife? Just finished binge watching the first 4 seasons on Netflix. There are a lot of lovely period clothes!

  10. I would love to see an Orphan Black MKAL, so many clones with so many personalities it would fun

    ReplyDelete
  11. Call the Midwife and Gray's Anatomy

    ReplyDelete
  12. I second Lizzie's suggestion of Call the Midwife. The time period and subject matter provide a lot of options. Perhaps a baby blanket or sweater?

  24. Luther (we could post lots of pictures of Idris Elba...)
    The Killing

  25. For me the designer would be more important than the series. I watch very little screen (movie or TV) so I don't have a vested interest in a series. The ability to see previous designs would weigh in heavily for me. I love the mystery aspect and learning new things but I'd rather make something that I know someone will enjoy, even if it isn't me. Poorly written patterns tend to irritate the crap out of me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Anything Marvel-related...particularly the Netflix shows like Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Luke Cage? Doctor Who, once the new series drops? What about getting into some comics? (Captain Marvel is fairly begging for a KAL, I think.)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Supernatural!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Orphan Black!
    Fear the Walking Dead- a sea-related colorway, seaweedy strands that look raggedy.
    Alice in Wonderland could be crazy fun with colors!
    Tarzan: the Legend - jungle- inspired, and plenty of photos of Alexander Saarsgard!!


    NOT shows that are already done like Penny D or Killing

    ReplyDelete
  29. I enjoyed the KALs that were brand based (Malabrigo, Koigu) and hope to see some more of those.
    As for MKALs, Call the Midwife and Victoria would interest me.

  32. I would love to see something green, leafy and "Portlandy" from GRIMM.

  33. Supernatural or The Black Dagger Brotherhood would be awesome.

  38. I'll add my vote(s) for Supernatural, NCIS, Star Trek, and or Dr. Who :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'd love to see a supernatural one, bit surprised it hasn't happened already actually simply based on the popularity of the show.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Grace and Frankie suggest very different colors!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Daredevil / Punisher, please!

    ReplyDelete
  42. The Royals on E! resume in November, 2016 in the US. How about that? Believe there will be one episode a week for ten weeks, so nice timeframe for many, rather than a binge.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would love to see Black Sails, The Royals, Mr. Selfridge.

  46. It looks like I'm for sure in the minority, but I would love a KAL for Monday Night Football, Big Bang Theory or Criminal Minds.

    ReplyDelete
  47. How about 'inspired by The magnificent Alan Rickman'?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh, "Yes!" to Mara's suggestion of Miss fisher's Mysteries. also I'd add 'Doc Martin' - what a great collection of handwork has come across in that series. Another suggestion would be 'Endeavor' (this is a series made in the last few years that is the prequel to 'Morse' on Masterpiece on PBS.) which is set in the early 60's and has had quite a few terrific handworked garments.
