What’s Sherlock Got Me Doing: The mystery KAL revolves around a small knitted market/grocery bag.
Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced (participants should be able to work from patterns, knitting in the round on two circular needles, & knit lace from written instructions)
Here’s How It Works:
A Mystery knitalong (KAL) is where you know what type of item you are knitting, but you don’t know what the pattern is or how it will look when you are done. You come into the store, register, and buy your yarn. (Some out-of-state participants do this through email and phone.) Once you have signed up for the KAL, an invitation is emailed to you, at the email address you provided at registration, inviting you to join the KAL Group on Google. Then the fun begins!
When you sign in to the Google Group, following the directions in the email, you will find some files there, including gauge information and a list of dates when each clue (the parts of the pattern) will be posted.
The Google Group is set up specifically for the current Mystery KAL and it is a private, non-listed group, so only those participating in the KAL can join the group, and you can only join by invitation. Participants are free to post questions, report on their progress, and support each other through the group's message board. TYF also has support groups for hand-on help.
