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!)

It's an Easter Bonnet!

Jean, make sure you post your picture in the finished flight path thread on Ravelry.  I saw it in the regular thread, but the winners will be chosen from the finished object picture thread.  I wouldn't want you to lose out.

Thank you I did post it ----I think I did it right, I will never win anyway but it is fun trying.
I went into the I Pad I-Tunes and started to down load Let's Knit2gether pod cast (videos) but now I have no idea where they are going, any ideas?

These are very enjoyable videos so I would love to get them on my I Pad.

Is there a specific place for videos on the iPad? I'd check there. I know on my iPhone, video podcasts are usually under videos.

Thanks for responding Cheryl, I found it today.

Glad you found it.

Well, I ran out of knitting and have been spinning for three days... I'm ready to knit again, and just want something comfortable... SO, I'm starting my second Flight Path (this time in red)... wonder how long it will take?

Knowing you, probably no time at all.

We shall see.

Second time around...my guess is, pretty quick!

At least I won't have to wait for the clues... it's all right here.
