Then I came here to write this review and saw someone else's review that said there isn't even a single page per date!

The stand is now cardstock, not the plastic of the past.

I have purchased previous versions of this calendar. This year's is very disappointing. There are only 3 pages per week: M-T, W-Th, F-Sa-Su, and many patterns are divided over mulitple days. I should have read the cover that said that there are only 100+ patterns.

I have the 2007 and 2009 calendars from this company so I was looking forward to this one. I received it today and was immediately struck by several external differences.

The box is pathetic. Previous years had a sturdy cardboard box with magnetic closure and a hinged lid to create a stand. This year it's a cardstock box (much thinner), no magnetic closure, and I am instructed to pull a tab on the inside of the lid, fold it round and tuck it into the back of the box to make a stand. It looks MUCH less sturdy. So I decided to reuse the box from 2009.

That's when I discovered that the 2011 pages are physically smaller than the 2009 and 2007 ones - they will rattle around in the 2009 stand, and the 2009 pages can't be stored in the 2011 box.

I wrote to the publisher, Andrews McMeel Publishing, to express my dissatisfaction. Then I came here to write this review and saw someone else's review that said there isn't even a single page per date! Sure enough, the first page is Jan 1 and 2, the next Jan 3 and 4, the third Jan 5 and 6, and the fourth covers the weekend of Fri the 7th to Sun the 9th. Doubly pathetic. What's the use of a day to day calendar with more than one date on the page?

The only saving grace is that the patterns themselves do look interesting to me. The first week of patterns has a throw blanket, a stash basket, and a scarf - all things I am likely to try making. In comparison, the first TWO weeks of 2009 had a soap sack, "guitar-man" socks, sushi, a handbag, "plastic cup cozies" and a baby bib - none of them things that I would make, and several of the patterns spanned multiple days.

Projects are good but many span 2 or more days. There seem to be a good variety of projects.

I would have thought that Monday through Friday would have had their own page, but it's shared days. On the weekend you can have THREE days on a page.

Not well thought out, I wouldn't purchase this one again, and would not recommend in the future JUST FOR THE ABOVE REASONS. I understand the need to save costs, BUT AT WHAT COST? Who ever thought this concept up, should look for another position.

I take the calendar apart and file the different projects in a file box. Each section is labled such as: Baby items, scarfs, etc.

I've been a faithful purchaser of Accord Publishing's knitting pattern desk calendars, and at first I was extremely impressed both with the patterns and the presentation of the calendar. The 2009 one had a pattern for nearly every day (Saturday and Sundays were on one page), and I really looked forward to changing over to the next day to see what it held. Also, the box/display was solidly constructed and sturdy, meaning that the occasionally accidental swipe off my desk was no problem at all.

Last year, however, they changed the design of the calendar to be two days per pattern (or sometimes four days if it was a two-page pattern), with Friday-Sunday having a single page. This meant that you only flipped the page every other day (or three days if one a weekend), which pretty much halved the number of patterns even when you take into account the monthly 'bonus pattern'. This was very disappointing, but at least the box held up.

The 2011 calendar retains the two-days-per-pattern (three days for the weekend) structure of the 2010 calendar, but the box is completely different! It's made of light paperboard instead of the heavy, solid cardboard composite of the previous two years' designs, and the box has already ripped in two places. It's also smaller than previous incarnations, meaning that the type and photos have shrunk. Where the photos used to give you a perfect idea of what the creation was to look like, now you're lucky to get a picture of the entire thing. It's certainly a cheaper quality desk calendar than they have previously put out, and so far this year's patterns are not as creative or striking as previous years' patterns.

Overall, I'm disappointed in Accord's changes. What was wrong with the 2009 design?

I have bought or received as a gift this calendar for several years and have always loved it. However, I am quite disappointed in this year's edition. Many of the patterns span a three day period, and the calendar has many less patterns than in past years. I will have to think twice about buying it again!

The 2011 Knitting Pattern a Day calendar is terrible. The stand is now cardstock, not the plastic of the past. It falls over, it falls apart, the pages fall out. The cardstock is going to rip and it's only January. What a disappointment! I'm going to try the stand from last year to see if the pages fit in there and use that if possible.
