Oh I LOVE this pattern! You always find the best shawl patterns. Do you mind if I ask which LYS? I kinda wanna do it! I know you are somewhere in MA. Would that weird you out if I asked you to share the info? I need to find some kind of knitting group somehow! You can PM me if you don't want to post a reply on here.
Dr. L - I called and I am trying to decide which yarn to use. I LOVE the mini mochi - gorgeous but the gauge is so much smaller. There is a Mochi Plus which is worsted and same colorways, but she says she will need to order from California and it might take a week. What do you think I should do? I haven't done a knit along before - will I fall too far behind? Also, I didn't see anything in the thread, but is there a finish by date that you know of?
ETA Update: I had her order the Mochi Plus for me so I should have it by the end of next week. Very excited!
There is typically no end date. For the Advent scarf, she would send out a pattern a day that covered around 16 rows. We could finish it by Christmas Eve or 4th of July, whenever we had the time. For this one I think it will be more a matter of AWing our progress and asking for help if/when needed.
For the Advent scarf we have international participants, so this should be fun!
