So, my free mystery lace KAL has been turned into a not so free Mystery Lace KAL. Apparently, there was some sort of hootananny over at the Yahoo group (which I haven't paid any attention too), and it's caused all sorts of personal problems for the designer. I can't really comment all that much, since I don't know what it was about. And, the explanations of the designer on Ravelry lead me to believe that I really don't want any part of knowing. I like to knit because there's usually no drama involved, ya know?
I won't be upping the $10 to join in the Mystery fun. In my head I was willing to spend X amount of money on this project, and the fee puts me over my budget. I'm trying to not be judgmental, but I am super annoyed. I was really excited about this project. But, I also think it's kind of snarky to say you'll do something for free and then give out one clue and turn around and change your mind. Again, maybe it's really warranted based on whatever went on in the Yahoo group.
Anyway, now I have 1320 yards of white laceweight, and apparently about a million size 8/0 clear beads. Any ideas on what to do with it?
