Thanks to all for welcoming me.

Here's a question...What forum's are you all in now, or have been in before? Since I ask the question I must be the first to confess - I was in an active N'SYNC forum. <gasp>
Ok Slipstitch, I told the story about the oddball shawl a bunch of times, so which one are you? Slipstitch isn't exactly a name I remember

Check out our thread about our area here.

Let's all have a moment of silence for our missing shawl.



Also, I'm THRILLED that everyone is happy with the plan for the shawls to revisit where they have already gone.

It's nice to have a definite plan now, isn't it?

I'm so far behind. I have been so busy I haven't been able to get on here very much.

We have a missing shawl? Has it been recovered yet? I'm guessing it is the Misty Blues Shawl?

What is the plan for the "revisit" of the shawls?

Sorry about all the questions, it's the only way I'll be able to catch up. I'll try to do better in the future.

Here's Shandeh's idea about the shawls returning to the knitters.

Remember how we said that it would be good to use the same yarn on the shawls again to make them look nice? Some of us may not have any more of the yarn we used before, but we can still work on the same shawl, just for fun.

I'm thinking about using 11 knitters on each shawl, reversing the order of knitters on the return trip, so we can send packages to the person who sent us a package earlier!

This way, each person gets to knit for 2 or 3 times.
(I'm the only one knitting 4 times.)
If you prefer to NOT knit again, just send me a private message, letting me know your preference.

Here is the plan for each shawl:

You're right. The missing shawl is the Misty Blues, and it has not turned up yet.

I'm all done with my section! The only problem is that the shawl is starting to get a little too big for the ciruclar needle that it came on. Should I go out and buy a bigger one?

The shawl I had was threaded onto a piece of scrap yarn, and we each used our own needles. You can try that, carmabelle, maybe whoever is getting it from you has the right size?

Thanks for the info, Shandeh's plan sounds good to me.

I hope our MIA shawl turns up soon.

Okay, I mailed the worsted weight shawl to SNOWBEAR! It's on it's way priority mail, so you should have it in a few days.

I would post a picture, but just realized I didn't take one.
