Hello and welcome to the “Use the Force” Binge Mystery Knit-a-long! I am so excited you are here! This MKAL is happening in conjunction with Leawesome’sUse the Force“ Binge Mystery Crochet-a-long. Both the MKAL and MCAL use the Lorna’s Laces Limited Edition colors “The Dark Side” and “The Light Side” in Shepherd Sport, available only at Jimmy Beans Wool.

This MKAL is perfect for Star Wars fans young and old, who want to come together and knit something fun in anticipation of upcoming Episode 7!

Dates for the Binge MKAL are November 20th-22nd. A clue will be released each day for those 3 days, for a total of 3 clues. You are encouraged to watch Episodes 1-6 while you knit or crochet! We know you’ve seen them a million times, but why not a re-watch while you create something fun you can wear to watch “The Force Awakens” when it comes out in December!?!?!

Clue Release Schedule:
CLUE 1 - Friday, November 20th
CLUE 2 - Saturday, November 21st
CLUE 3 - Sunday, November 22nd
