It's a Mystery to Me

Ok, so I have this idea. The class we're doing at the LYS is a sampler jacket. We're doing 7 classes, one each Sunday for 2 hours. I've seen the jacket and it's so very cool. I'm really excited about it and as my excitement grows I want to share it with everyone. So, how about we do this as a Mystery Jacket Along??? Come on, it'll be fun. I promise. We're working the jackets in Lamb's Pride Worsted so it's super affordable and there are tons of colors to choose from. Wanna jump in and get knitting??? Here's what to do...

1. Go check out the colors of Lamb's Pride here.
2. Choose either one color for the entire jacket OR choose a main color and one contrasting color.
3. Call (518-523-9230) or email Sue with your color choice(s) and your email address.

Sue will order your yarn and forward your email address to me so I know you'll be participating. As soon as I receive your email address I'll send you the gauge and suggested needle information.

The official start date will be February 9th so everyone has almost a month to get their yarn and swatch. On February 9th I will email everyone the first panel of the sweater and will continue to release a portion of the sweater each and every Sunday until the entire pattern has been handed out.

Get on over to the Brown Sheep website and choose your yarn! It's going to be a blast!!!

ETA: This pattern was originally written as a way to teach sweater construction as well as different techniques. There are different options to match your skill level. Don't be afraid to try this if you've never knit a sweater. It's easy enough for a beginner but exciting enough to keep even an expert knitter interested. :-)

ok - (after I just purchased Cottage Craft yarn at Norma's sale...) here are my questions.
1. does it have steeks? (wink)
2. is it a cardi or a pullover?
3. two colors like in colorwork or like in a couple of stripes?

I know it's a mystery but still, Kerry, before I commit time I need a couple of hints.

If only I had the attention span for it! I'm lucky if I can knit 10 rows before I lose my focus these days. It's pretty pathetic!

I would like to know how many balls and approximate cost with my case to Maryland.
