Knitting Community

Some of us in the Knitting Community have joined the "Flight Path" mystery Knitalong organized by Mary Scott Huff. If you're on Ravelry, you can find the Ravelry group here. I'm using Wool of the Andes Sport Weight in "Wonderland Heather," "Baltic Heather," "Saffron," "Fairytale" and "Avocado." We don't know at this point what the project will be, but it's an accessory for a woman. Here's my swatch:

Swatching instructions say to knit a swatch using the larger needles (I got gauge with size 4) working in the rnd or back and forth using two colors, any stranded pattern we wanted, since we don't have the chart yet. We're to aim for 6 1/2 sts/in. Sport weight or DK would be most suitable.

We will get one part of the pattern each week. Today (If you're reading this on Monday, January 30th) we get the first "clue." It will be fun to see what the project turns into. It isn't too late to join us if you want. It isn't a race. Just a fun thing to do together. All you need is the pattern (see link above) and 5 skeins of sport-weight yarn, each a different color. Just get your pattern and yarn and join us! We get the last clue February 27, 2012. You can buy the pattern later, but it will cost more, and you need to finish with the group to qualify for the drawings. (Yes, there are prizes!)

Yes, in fact I was just going to write to see when we will receive the next clue and yarn. I will be ready.

I'll be ready as soon as I get the yarn.  Can't continue without it.

As soon as I receive my extra yarn and next clue! Though hopefully it will have to compete with my wheel!

What?  The stork hasn't arrived?  You mean you don't have your baby yet?  Holy Toledo!  I thought you'd have it by now. 

She was scheduled to arrive last Friday but we were in NOLA, so she was rescheduled for TOMORROW!

Ah, well, all is right then!  :o)

Has anyone heard when the next clue or yarn should arrive?

She originally scheduled the next clue for today, but as of the end of the week she was still making skeins, so I don't think she will start again until all the new yarn has been sent and (hopefully) received.

Okay thanks I'm just trying to keep up to date with this.

Thanks! I was hunting all over Ravelry for info on the restart.

My yarn came to day now for the next clue and I will be set.

I'm hoping on Monday!
