Victorian Writers Club. The idea is each knitalong is designed to go with a Victorian book; you get a fun package with a special yarn, an exclusive pattern and a bunch of little things that go with the book.
Our first readalong/knitalong is Sherlock Holmes' "The Sign of the Four". I am listening to it on my Ipod, and my "Sherlock Holmes Mystery Kit" package just arrived. It's so cute!
I received: one skein of hand-dyed Zen Yarn Garden Sock Yarn in "Hound of the Baskervilles" (a mahogany sort of color), a pattern for "The Sign of Four" socks, A Sherlock notebook in which to jot down my own curious incidents, a zippered pouch with clocks on it, a little round wooden box with clock pattern, an orange and clove scented Sherlock soap, a stitch marker, a Sherlock pen, a Sherlock bookmark, a Sherlock pin, and a Sherlock gift tag.
Elementary, My Dear Watson! I want to start this immediately, but have a long list of other projects I must do first. But maybe I can sneak it in...
