Hello Clue four, no more playing hard to get, I’m ready for the big reveal.
ETA: I highly recommend having the suggested 100 cm / 40 in cords or needles. Two in addition to your working needle if you’re going to make this. The longest I had on hand was 90 cm / 36 in and although manageable, would make all those stitches a little unwieldy for a less experienced knitter. Also easier to take a recognizable progress photo on the longer length, much less “boonching” :). I say though Watson, that helped to conceal the mystery and so… on with the knitting and perhaps an FO by weekend’s end.
