mkeknitting has been dormant for quite awhile. To be honest, I don't have much time to dedicate to "lively-ing" up the community and, quite frankly, keep forgetting the community even exists.
Preferably, the new co-maintainer would inject some new life into the community. We're not a large bunch, and I suspect many of us are now on Ravelry.com, but it would still be nice to have a more active community here on LJ.
Additionally, as this is an open community at this point, there's no active moderation needed as far as approving new members or entries, so the time impact on your life would be minimal.
