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? When I want a knitting pattern a day calendar, I want a pattern a day in a display box that will last the year. My 2011 calendar's display ripped the first time I opened it, and ripped again when being lightly handled. Being that it just turned over to February, I'm concerned that this cheaply-made calendar won't survive until December!
The calendar also seems to have a bad habit of having patterns for a holiday on the holiday itself. It looks pretty, but unless you're going to sit at home on that day and knit it, it kinda defeats the purpose of the decoration. However, if you just sort out by patterns instead of using it as a calendar, it's much more useful.
Overall, it's a novelty item and I enjoy it :)
