It’s a Mystery

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

 

 

I’ve never done a mystery knit along before.

 

I know…lots and lots of people have and they love them.  But me?  I don’t like surprises really.  I don’t like suspense either.  I like to know whats going to happen and when.  In fact, I even like to know how a movie is going to end before I see it.  I enjoy the movie so much more when I know how it will end.  I don’t get nervous or anxious.

 

So, a mystery knit along really isn’t up my alley.   If you don’t know, here are the basics of a mystery knit along.  The designer gives out one clue a week and you knit that clue.  Then you wait patiently for the next one.  So, it’s a mystery ending AND I have to be patient.  Oh boy!

 

This particular knit along is from KnitPurlHunter and it is a 2 color hat.  It begins on July 3rd and each clue comes out every Thursday at 8am in July.

 

I’m going for it and I talked Carly into joining me.  Wanna play along?

 

The yarn required is Hikoo Simplicity.  You’ll need 2 skeins of the main color and one skein of a contrast color.  Carly’s doing pink and black and I’m doing blue and white.   We have almost every color in stock now.  Click here for the online shopping link.  You can buy it online and we can ship it to you in time for the knit along or you can come down and pick it out in person;)
