Mystery Stole 2006

UPDATE: This group is now closed to new members. If you didn't get a chance to sign up, don't worry, the pattern will be available later this fall in a traditional pattern format.

Its baaack! Mystery Stole 2 is getting organized right now. For those of you who aren't familiar with how Mystery Stole works, I'll fill you in. Mystery Stole 2oo6 is a knitalong using Yahoo Groups as a host site. Beginning July 7, I will give you part of a design for a lace stole. This will continue for a total of 6 weeks, when you will have the complete design. You won't know what you're knitting, you just sign up, cast on, and knit. Last year's design was the Leda's Dream stole (you can see it by looking at Patterns For Sale in the sidebar). This time around I have created a design that can be more evenly broken up so that each week's knitting is the same amount. There is one other big change to the way I'm doing it this year versus last year - last year we allowed sign ups to the group for months after the knitalong had actually finished. This gave people who didn't hear about it at the first, time to wander over and join us, but it also meant that the discussion was pretty much all over the place as far as where everyone was in the knitting. This time, I will close the group to new members on July 14, the day the second clue is posted. I think that will keep the group more on track. The design will again be released as a finished, cohesive pattern for sale with pictures and some sort of bonus design for those that don't want to do the knit along or who want to know what they're knitting before they knit it, but the group members will be offered the pattern at a discount.

Last time we had over 700 knitters join the knitalong. If you want to be a part of Mystery Stole 2006, make sure you join soon! Tell your friends, tell your family, tell anyone who you think would be interested because on July 14, the group will be closed.

Thanks for all the compliments on the sock yesterday. I answered Regina's question in an update at the end of the post and as for the question about which increase I used, I used a Make One Right Slant every time. I see no reason why there couldn't be a lacy version of Melanie's Twist using Yarn Overs for the increases - just as an idea for another option.

Woohoo...another one....I loved the last one, and although its not quite finished (stuff happened and I didn't get a chance to finish spinning up the rest of the yarn for a bit. I'm now working on it again, and it was great to have the support.

I tried to find the supply info in the Files section and didn't see it. (I'm already a member so I have access.) Am I looking in the wrong place?

This will be my first knitalong ever and I'm looking forward to it.

I can find the group, but even though it's the 14th, it just won't let me join. It says it's private.

If you can still add me, please add amber07242000@yahoo.com.
