Follow Your Arrow - Part 1

The lovely girls who convinced me to join the Stephen West Color Craving Knit Along, have more recently convinced me to sign up for the Ysolda Teague Follow Your Arrow Knit Along…  and I dive in again.
Following my arrow 1-3 of 5

This one is not only a surprise knit along, but it is one in which each week participants are provided with two options, so that in total there are 32 possible outcomes.  And if that wasn't enough, you can knit it as a single color or as a two color piece, and instructions are included for that as well.  Oh, the possibilities.

I'm proceeding with the multiple color version – I'm using four colors because I'm doing a little stash busting.  And I am hoping that I have chosen wisely the yarn type.  I have had on hand for some time this Ella Rae Silkience.  The nice twist and little bit of shine of the silk in this yarn will hopefully help to showcase the texture and stitch definition nicely, even though I'm not entirely sure what texture and stitch definition I'm creating.  These projects are such a leap for me.

I cannot wait to see what I end up with, and I will keep you posted.

Until it's complete… I leave you with progress shots of Clues 1b, 2a and 3b. More details are here on Ravelry.

Looking forward to seeing what
comes next
