second section involved a mosaic slip-stitch pattern which was a little hard for me to get into the rhythm of, but once I did a few repeats, the knitting was easy and quick. I must confess, I'm not completely finished with the second clue (oops!), I still have about an inch of knitting left to do before I start the third clue, which was posted this morning.
The third clue can be found here, along with all the other Knit-a-Long clues. Remember- this is a free Knit-a-Long, no need to pay for a pattern! Just grab 4 colors of Kenzie that you like and get to knitting! I'll check in with you all again next week to show you what the third clue looked like, and to get to work on the fourth and final clue!

Wild Flower Sweater -
A surprisingly easy-to-make sweater, with a variety of options to make it just right for you. We'll start with the beautiful back medallion, then you decide - cropped or long back; long, short or no sleeves; rounded or straight front; buttons, shawl pin or leave it open? This sweater uses basic crochet stitches and has step-by-step directions. A perfect choice for your first crocheted garment.
Four Sessions-Wednesdays, October 16 (6-9pm), October 30, November 13 and December 4, 6-8 pm; $80, supplies not included.
Beaded Wrist-itts -
Elegant or funky, depending on your yarn/bead choices, these wrist-itts are fashionable, functional and fun. Make them into wrist-warmers or fingerless mitts; long or short, beaded or not; the choices are all yours. This is a great project to learn, or practice, beading techniques; simple ribbing; and working in the round. You'll be surprised by how easy these are to make - and how little yarn they use!
One Session-Saturday, October 19, 12:30 to 3:30 pm; $30, supplies not included.
Cotton Market Bag -
Practical doesn't have to be boring. This market bag will stretch to hold your shopping treasures and look great doing it. And it's easily customized - change the width, length, color(s), handle size and more. Oh, did we mention it makes a great gift? So practical.
One Session-Tuesday, October 29, 6 to 9 pm; $30, supplies not included.

I have 2 lovely accessory classes to share with you.
Tomorrow, Monday, October 14 @ 6 pm, begins the I-cord Glove class. We begin with the fingers and work downwards. Making fingers 10 at a time has a charm that can only be truly understood by doing it. This set will be the best fitting gloves that you have ever met.
The second accessory is the Urban Turban; this class begins on Wednesday, October 16 @ 6 pm. This clever hat by Xandy Peters is a cute alternative to the usual beanie. A few ladies have mused about how glamorous they would look wearing this hat during an early morning walk on the beach.
If either of these classes sounds good to you, please call or stop into the store as soon as possible so that we don't cancel them.

The way this Knit-a-Long using Kenzie works is that you pick out 4 colors of Kenzie (and trust me, it comes in GREAT colors!), and once a week on THURSDAYS, a new clue will be released. This will be a 4 week Knit-a-Long, so that by the end of October, you have finished your project!
The finished project will be some sort of cowl, but what it looks like is a Mystery! The first clue will be posted tomorrow, Thursday October 3rd at 9am EDT, 6am here in Ventura! You can find all the info at Knit Purl Hunter, where the clues will be posted. Bonus: this is a FREE Knit-a-Long, yay!
Stay tuned to this blog to see my progress as a work through the clues, I'm very excited about it! I hope you'll join me! :)
