Mystery "Magic Hobo Bag" Knitalong
Has Started

There are only TEN days remaining to sign up for the latest Tempe Yarn & Fiber Mystery Knitalong. The last day to sign up is April 18th.

Here are the details:

"Magic Hobo Bag" Knitalong
The inspiration for this project came from the traveling that most of us do throughout the year, but especially during the summer. Once it is completed, the Magic Hobo Bag can be transformed into a travel pillow, a shrug, a shoulder shawl, a lap blanket, and, last but not least, a small hobo bag. We hope it will become your favorite travel companion as you venture out on future journeys! Registration for the Mystery Hobo Bag Knitalong is open from April 4th -18th, so be sure to stop by TYF soon to sign up and pre-order your yarn and/or needles. A $10 participation fee and a 50% deposit on yarn, needles, and shipping (if applicable) is due at registration.

The recommended yarn is Sierra by Cascade, and it will take eight skeins total for this project. The skill/experience level for the Mystery Magic Hobo Bag is Advanced Beginner to Intermediate. Participants should have some knitting and pattern reading experience. Clues will be spaced out so that participants can expect about 1" of knitting per day (over approx. 150 sts.). The yarn order will be placed with Cascade after registration closes, with delivery expected at TYF sometime during the week of April 27th. Participants will be notified once their yarn arrives, and arrangements can be made ahead of time for yarn to be shipped to anyone who won't be able to come in to TYF to pick theirs up. On May 4th we will begin emailing Yahoo! Group invitations to everyone who has picked up their yarn. Weekly Mystery Knitalong support/social groups will be held on Tuesdays from Noon-2:00 pm and from 6:00-8:00 pm, and a Show and Tell celebration will be held at TYF once the knitalong has been completed.
