Okay, two more things to cover in general announcements about the KAL, then I promise we’ll get back to the pretty knitty pictures.
The first thing is about the flat world we live in. Thanks to the miracle of the interwebs, there are now people signed up for this KAL as far away as Germany. But the local is still the level where things happen – and it’s been really neat as people sign up hearing about the formation of local groups to do this project. Mom and I are fully on that bandwagon – we have announced it other places, but with plans complete I can post it here.
Both Mom and myself are starting local KAL groups that will meet once a week during Lent as we work on our clues. We’ll have a chance to in person discuss both our knitting and that chapter of the Biblical story.
Since it is more of a class setting, we’re charging 35$ to attend the seven-week in-person KAL. (This includes a digital copy of the pattern – if you’ve already donated, this cost will be prorated.)
Mom’s group is meeting at her house in Howard County, MD. She’ll be meeting on Thursdays: March 10th-April 19th (the last day is a Tuesday) from 7:30-9:00 p.m. If you’d like more info on that, you can email her: ldjennings6 at verizon dot net.
My group is meeting at Yarns Unlimited in Sewickley, PA. We’ll meet on Sundays, March 6th-April 17th from 1:00-2:00 p.m. If you’d like more info on that, pm me or call Yarns Unlimited to sign up.
If you don’t have to live in southwestern PA or central MD, and you want to start a group – what better way to meet than in the tres sweet Lenten Mystery Scarf KAL Ravelry group?
The second thing is a matter of convenience – My cool boss at Yarns Unlimited has been so inundated with orders for the scarf yarn that she’s made a kit for it. You can purchase it by clicking here. If Rowan’s Felted Tweed is a little too high-end for your taste, they also stock Berroco’s Vintage DK, which comes in all the appropriate colors in beautiful heathers.
Enough shilly-shallying. Tomorrow: pictures. Today: sandwiches.
