Phoebe and Foxy Mystery Summer Knit-Along
Join Jane Thornley and me for the Phoebe and Foxy Summer Knit-Along.
As part of the Phoebe and Foxy Files, Jane and I have collaborated on a single project this time: a shawl that incorporates our two very different knitting styles. Clues will be released once a week, beginning Tuesday, 08 August. There will be five clues in all. If you have already signed up for the Phoebe and Foxy Files, you will receive the clues.
Otherwise you can sign up just for the Mystery Knit-Along at Ravelry here.
As you might expect, there will be lots of colour incorporated into our pattern. To help you along with this, I have put together a number of yarn kits with a variety of Fleece Artist and Hand Maiden Fine Yarn yarns. They contain different combinations of silk, linen, and wool in Flaxen, Lady Godiva, Kid Silk, Tree Wool, Woolie SIlk 3-Ply and Maiden Hair. There is enough yarn in each of them to complete the project. However you may wish to add in some of your own colours.
The weight of yarn we have chosen is double knitting weight and recommended needles are 5.00 mm. (US 8).
