Mystery Stole 4 KAL
 
I'm so happy.....especially since I JUST finished the last one! :teehee:
Is anyone else joining, have joined? What yarn and beads do you plan to use? I'm going to stick with KnitPicks Shadow, this time in the Spring Green Heather colorway and use dark grey transparent beads. Also plan to stick with my KP Size 3 circular.

Hello, My name is Leah Higgins and I just finially got clearence to chat on this. I am a little frustrated because it took me several tries and a lot of time. I am glad I am finially here. I am from San Diego Ca. I have a quick question about needles. What are large eye blunt needles? Are they the double pointed needles? And why do they ask for large? What size is large? I havn't really looked around this site much, I am enjoying knowing there are so many knitters out there. I am always trying to turn my friends on to knitting or crochetting and do have a small knitting group together. cloud9

I have joined MS4 on yahoo and ravelry as well. can't wait to get started. I am using Knit Picks Gloss in Pinot with Blue Iris Aurora Borealis Finish. This is what I have in my stash and am now doing my swatch with it and it looks OK so far.

They're tapestry or yarn needles, used for sewing in the ends on a project. You need the large eye to thread the yarn through.

I can't seem to be able to sign up. I have a Yahoo ID (for Flickr), but i use a different e-mail and it says my e-mail is no-good for this group. Anyone knows what's that all about?

I signed up a few days ago and have been on a bead hunt ever
since. I have no idea where to get beads here! I'm planning to use
a "light fingering" weight (according to Ravelry) 100% cotton to
make mine but I'm waiting to decide color until I find beads :)

Libbie - there is a complete lack of choice of beads here in the UK as well. I used the Artbead web site that people recommended in the US. I have ordered 5 different beads 3 packs of each just to be sure. the next day I had an email that they had been shipped already. I paid $13. something for postage, which is OK even with the postage I don't think I could have gotten the beads in this country for the price I paid in total.

Also have just found out that the Colourmart company a lot of people have been talking about is actually in the UK. so called them up and they are sending me a yarn sample card to get an idea of what their yarns look and feel like for free. Very nice lady on the phone, very helpful.

Hi I am also signed up for the MS4. I am using Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud River. I bought clear bead with silver. They really sparkle on the yarn. So see everyone there. I think I am tee_tyme_50 on yahoo. I also use Teri when I get stuck on something and need to ask questions.
Have fun and see you there.
