You can find the MKAL thread HERE

Ellen of Earthfaire has put together some amazing kits just for this MKAL, you can find them HERE.

And if you happen to be near The Dalles, Oregon, you can stop by The Whole Ball of Yarn (421 E 2nd) for some recommendations from those who have seen the mystery! Born to Bead Wild is just down a few blocks so you can see what goodies they have after you pick up your yarn.

There will be a give away at the end of the MKAL for those who participate and upload pictures of their finished scarf.
I will choose one winner whose picture I think is best, a friend/tester/co-conspirator will choose a picture she thinks is best and one will be chosen using a random number generator. To be eligible you must have your finished project photo uploaded by December 29th, the winner will be chosen the following day. You will receive a skein of lace weight yarn and the entire ebook collection (if you already purchased it, I will refund you your ebook purchase price)
