I'm so happy.....especially since I JUST finished the last one!
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.

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?

Where do you sign up? I have a friend who did one and my interest has been piqued ever since.

Hi Leah and welcome!

You should start a new topic (visible when you're on the page with the list of messages) so you aren't hi-jacking another thread!

The needles you're after are yarn needles or sometimes they're labled "children's needles" if they're plastic. The eyes are big so you can thread the yarn through. They aren't double pointed needles.

About what level of difficulty would you say a MS knitalong is? I have always wanted to try one, but haven't really knitted lace yet (except in a dishcloth with cotton yarn)

I think that anybody can do this, with all the support of the yahoo group, Ravelry MS4 group and KH there will always be somebody here to help and support. I think I read on the Yahoo group that one of the members of the MS3 had never knitted anything before that stole and finished hers. Just take it one stitch at a time and ask questions whenever you need to.
