The Mystery KAL

As I said in my last post, this is the first time I've ever done a KAL, and the fact that it's a mystery KAL is all the more exciting. Was everyone else on tenter hooks last night waiting for the next clue? I saw on the Ravelry group that the clue would be posted at midnight ET! Lucky west coast folk would get that at 9pm, but that would be 11pm for me and with having to get up at 6am for school during the week, I just couldn't stay up that long. Of course I checked the website first thing this morning and printed off the next clue.

I prefer to knit my socks with dpn's but I only have one pair of #2's. So that I could do both socks together I transferred the first cuff to some other size needles and cast on for the second cuff. Now I've started on the second cuff and once I've done the 12 repeats I'll transfer the needles again. It's a little awkward doing it this way but not too much so. The alternative being to run out and buy another set of #2's (if my LYS even has them) which I just don't feel like.


So, who else is in on the KAL? I know Amanda is, and Leslie said she would be joining. I'll be checking my bloglines for any updates to see if you have posted about them. This is fun stuff :-)

oooh and would you look at that.... I just went to Leslie's blog to get her url and lo and behold, I see a mystery sock :-) Lovely color Leslie!

I'm glad you are having such fun with this! I'm a tad over loaded at present or I would join in with you and we could all have matching socks!!

I really like how the design is coming out - I particularly like the highly textured socks.

PS I wouldn't buy an extra pair of needles either.

Oh we're loving this aren't we! I really like knitting the same thing as someone I know. It's like having a huge safety net!

I want to start, but I'm already behind. I did get the yarn wound last night. That's a start, right? I love the color your yarn. They are looking very pretty.

They're looking great so far!

I was going to sign up for it, but the sock yarn I want to use this month is very variegated, and I wanted to make sure I got the right pattern for it.
