I am using Knit Picks Shadow, Sunset Heather. It was yarn that I had conveniently in my stash already. Of course, I only have two. I went on a search in Ravelry and found someone trade/sell-ing 2 hanks of the same yarn in the correct dyelot! Yay! I am very grateful. I should be purchasing today from Sandyknits. Thank you, thank you. ( She has some great looking hand dyed yarns in her Etsy shop)
So, there was some discussion about what size needles to use with this yarn. For this swatch I used US 3's and I am happy with the openness of the pattern. I haven't blocked yet either. I think most people have chosen to go with one size bigger. Another swatch may be in order.
The first clue comes out on Friday. I will be out of town until Monday. I am going to get behind on this. Hopefully, I will be bale to catch up enough to be eady for the next clue the following Friday.
Anyway, I am really anxious to get started. Should be lots of fun.
( We are ignoring the fact that I have other wip's that need to be completed, including a blanket that was gifted at Christmas undone.)
