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 really is beautiful, isn't it?
Thanks, Wendy, it really is.
Tee hee... I HAD to get it over with...
Beautiful I love the picture.
Thanks, my DH took the pic.. I took several myself, but his was better.
Nice! Love those daffodils.
Thank You a have about 1/2 an acre of daffodil I need to get more if it would stop raining long enough to get into the field.
Our neighbors have some but we don't... I just love them in the spring.
I love the smell I wish they would last all year long.
True... they smell so fresh... just like spring time.
I'm sure your birds are after that beautiful nectar!
