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!)

I don't have my yarn yet...maybe tomorrow.

Oooo, that's the last chance before Monday. So maybe it will be another week before we start up again?

I'm hoping it will be Monday.

Well, my mail gets here before noon, so even if I don't get it tomorrow, there is still time...plus we will have a week to finish the next clue... should be fine.

I'm just wondering if she'll put it off another week if some people don't have the yarn.

I don't think it would hurt to start on Monday, even if some of the yarn hasn't arrived yet.

I don't either. I'm just not sure she'll go ahead.

I just hope you get your clue before you have to head east. 

My heart really goes out to Mary. I think this really threw her for a loop.

I can't even imagine what she's going through!

But I think she handled it graciously, and with her usual sense of humor... though at first I think I heard a few whispered profanities.  Not that I blame her.

Where's that agree button?
