and the first clue was out last Friday and I received the yarns I planned to use on the day before ... everything came together in time for me! ;)
The good thing about this project is that I don't have to spend all my time on it ... at least at the beginning. Just an hour or so and I completed Clue 1:
The yarn is Alpaca Cloud from KnitPicks in Iris ... very soft, but I would like the colours to be more striking. This is my first time using alpaca yarns ... also in lace weight. I am holding out on my judgment right now since I had only knitted that little bit. Yet, I had an exasperating experience winding the hank into ball ... so much so that I don't even want to talk about it ... just want to have a swift now!
What else is happening? Well, the attack on the UFOs continues ... will tell you more later.
