The Mysteries of Life...Another TYF Mystery Knitalong

There are many mysteries in life.

What happened to the nose of the Sphinix?

What were the lights over Phoenix?

Who put all these rocks on top of each other?

What will the Tempe Yarn Mystery Knitalong Shawl look like?

Well it's time for you to begin your journey to find out. 

Here are the facts, only the facts....

     Sign Up Starts: Monday, June 17

     Knitalong Clues Begin: Monday, July 23

     Cost: $10 Participation Fee, plus cost of yarn and other materials

For this Mystery Knitalong (KAL), we are going to knit a beautiful shawl!

The skill/experience level for the KAL is Intermediate to Advanced. Participants should have experience working from patterns and knitting cables and lace from written instructions. It will also be helpful if participants know how to “purl back” without turning their work.

Here’s How It Works:
For those who are new to TYF’s Mystery KALs, here is how it works. A Mystery KAL is a knitalong 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.)

About a week before the KAL begins, an invitation is emailed to you at the email address you provided at registration, inviting you to join the KAL Group on Google. When you sign in to the Google Group, following the directions in the email, you will find some files there, including a list of dates when each clue (the parts of the patterns) 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 Mystery KAL Social Groups during the Knitalong so participants can come in and knit together.

If you have questions or would like to register for this Mystery KAL, please feel free to give us a call at 480-557-9166.
