Last November I hosted the first ever mystery knitalong and walkalong. It was met with lots of enthusiasm so I thought we'd continue the concept. Here we are on the other side of winter (or summer if you are in the southern hemisphere) and it's time to regroup. I've created another adventure filled with some knitting and walking. Once again, everything is connected, the title, the clue names, and each of the 4 sections. This time we'll be knitting a shawlette in 2 different colors of fingering weight yarn, 1 skein of each color. It'll be an adventure in slip-stitch patterns and some lace knitting.
The 4 sections of the shawlette represent some aspect of how you may feel while walking or an emotion you may encounter while making a lifestyle change. This shawlette truly tells a story…it’s kind of a poem in action. You might be interested in journaling to capture your thoughts as your proceed. Use the clue names as prompts for your writing. Abstract and geometrical terms/concepts will be used to name the clues. The rationale for this will become clear at the completion of our “walk”.
The meaning of the word “werifesteria” will be revealed at the end of the month. If you know the meaning of the word, please don’t spoil the fun…let’s wait until the end of the month.
The pattern will be 20% off through 3/28. It is appropriate for an intermediate knitter or advanced beginner that is extra-adventurous.
There will be two threads in the Healthy Knitter Ravelry Group. Please use that group to support one another during this process. One thread will be dedicated for discussion about the process and to cheer each other on; a separate thread will be available to post photos (“spoiler”). Please use the illustrated cover page for “Werifesteria” on your Ravelry project page.
Giveaways: At the end of the month, there will be Healthy Knitter project bags given away for several different accomplishments.

Most meaningful interpretation of the symbolism behind this project.
Creating this design has been an interesting process. I'm learning to listen to the yarn and not force my ideas...I suppose it's an act of patience. I'm always amazed how my original idea changes and grows into something quite different than conceived. While the final product is very different than where I began, I love the final product. I think you will too.
I almost forgot...there will be a special treat for all adventurers connected to the theme of the pattern and YOTH yarns at the end of your journey. Remember there is no need to knit the project...just walk with us. Or if you prefer skip the walking and do the knitting (ok, maybe try to walk a little). As always you can do both.
Have a wonderful time with your stitches and steps!
