|Do you need some knitting time with your toes in the sand and drink in your hand?
On July 1st we will continue our year of Mystery travels in Tahiti and the Society Islands. As we explore this island paradise on our “virtual retreat” we will create a two color crescent shawl with some amazing lace, slipped stitches and optional beadwork all done on an exquisite cashmere blend fingering weight.
And as with any great retreat, there will be lots of fun and prizes along the way.
Over the course of our eight weeks, we will be creating this exquisite shawl while we get to know all about island life, their history, people and food (and drinks).
Our lovely shawl is created from two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn. Beading is optional, but a great introduction to using beads.
The clues will be spread out over 8 weeks with simple, non-stressful sections released each week.
If you’ve never done a Mystery Knit Along before, you are in for a treat. Discovering the mystery along with your fellow knitters is the best.
Each Clue will be added to the one(s) previous, so in the end, you’ll have the final pattern in whole.
The MKAL discussions will be in the Wild Prairie Knits group, so come and join us.
Pattern is only $4 through June 30th. See more details here.
