This week, I’m sharing my progress on another mystery knit-along, of sorts. This one has a lot more direction to it, so I have a fairly good idea about where the project is heading, and the freedom to choose the stitch patterns I like best. So far it’s a lot of fun! This is the second annual Adventure KAL put on by Lee Meredith, and when the full pattern is published and the knit-along is over I’ll be able to knit dozens of different items from just one pattern!

Here’s my progress so far, on the 2nd of 3 clues:

This week, I’ve got a mystery project going on! This is a mystery knit-along by knitting designer Josh Ryks. The pattern is called “Urban Survival,” and instead of getting the whole pattern at one time, Josh is releasing it as a series of clues (one per week for a period of 5-6 weeks, I believe). I had a bit of a problem with my first color selection because the grey I had chosen didn’t show up on the background color well enough. So I went back to the dye pots, and I’m much happier with my project now! This is the first clue, near the beginning (the overall shape doesn’t change within this clue, it just gets more of this stripe sequence):

I’m excited to see where the next clue will lead – stay tuned, because I’ll share the next one on another edition of #MakersWednesday!

Now, it’s your turn – what have you been making this week? Share with us in the comments below, or tag your creations on Instagram and Twitter with #MakersWednesday. We’ll see you there!
