Keeping the Mystery KAL in Perspective

Perspectives Kit in Plum/Brass
You've heard that in life it's important to keep things in perspective.  I pledge to keep the new Mountain Colors Mystery Knit Along (MKAL) in perspective . . . . Literally.  Because it's knit in the Mountain Colors Perspective Crazyfoot yarn set!  

Have you used Perspectives yet?  It's the perfect solution for the color junkie in you!  Each set includes five mini skiens of coordinating colors of Crazyfoot yarn, a durable fingering weight wool that's machine washable.  Each mini skein contains 90 yards for a total of 450 yards per pack.  You get a fun mix of colors - but not too much of any one color.

Bonus:  We have the Crazyfoot Perspectives kits on sale at 20% off!

Perspectives in Silver/Purple
The MKAL is designed and hosted by Mari Chiba.  You've seen her designs in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.Purl, Knitty, Twist Collective, and more in addition to self publishing on Ravelry. But on top of all that professional stuff, we know that Mari is silly and fun - so I'm sure that this will be a fun project!

We know that the mystery pattern is a cowl.  What does it look like?  We don't know!  Mari tells us that it's approximately 26.5" around and 16" tall, and it's a lovely lightweight cowl that can be worn in any season.  She also said that it's perfect for the intermediate beginner who is familiar with knitting in the round and is eager to learn some new stitches.  How will Mari use the different colors in the Perspectives kit?  We'll all have to stay tuned...

Perspectives in Sage/Moss
The pattern is a Ravelry pattern and can be easily purchased through FiberWild! (along with our other 6,861 Ravelry patterns!).  The pattern updates will be sent each week through Ravelry, starting with Clue #1 on September 3rd - just in time to stuff in your bag for your Labor Day Weekend trip!  The remaining clues will be on the next three Thursdays: September 10th, 17th & 24th.

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
