June Cashmere Mystery KAL

At this point in my knitting life, I've determined that mystery knit-alongs (MKALs) just aren't my thing. I've had too many unpleasant surprises in the past: being tricked into doing intarsia (I'm looking at you, Mr. West), discovering that the project is really a hideous dickey rather than a wearable cowl (designer name redacted), feeling meh about the resulting project and not finishing it, or worse yet, finishing a project that I totally don't love....you get the idea.

Long story short, I'm making an exception this month for the June Cashmere Mystery KAL, and here's why: it's choose-your-own-adventure. That means I'll have a reasonable amount of control on the resulting project. I'll be using using just 1 skein of lace weight yarn in Moss (just as soon as it arrives), and the pattern is free! I plan to weigh my skein as I knit each weekly clue - that way, I can use every bit of beautiful cashmere without worrying about playing yarn chicken when it's time to knit the final border and bind-off!

It's not too late to join the MKAL! If you sign up for the free pattern, you'll also get free shipping on your yarn! Click here for more info on Ravelry.

You can see my weekly project on Instagram or here on this blog. I look forward to seeing your mystery cowl, too!
