June Mystery 220

image title
After my poor choice of yarn for the May project, I've made an early start on the June Mystery.

The instructions were to use a blockable yarn (therefore no acrylic for me, I can never get it to stay blocked) and a circular needle at-least-two-sizes-larger-than-recommended for that yarn. One of the moderators, Heather, used DK weight yarn with US 10.5 (6.5mm).  The other moderator, Ariel, used light worsted on US 10.5 needles. Both were happy with the way their projects were knitting up.

The designer did hers in DK on US 10.5 and had 180 yards of the yarn.

I am going to use 5.5mm (US 9) Harmony needles (which I will borrow from DD) and knit mine in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5ply (sport), in a dark green colour left over from a cardigan I knitted many years ago.

Care to join me?


  1. THanks for your comments on my blog posts. I don't know how else to communicate with you. It is a shawl. Now, what is your mystery project? Does that mean you get the instructions without knowing what it's going to be?

  2. I am near the end of this mystery shawl I have on the needles so I just might swing it this month!
