$60 subscription does NOT include In Dreams
$52 Christmas gift certificate DID include In Dreams
If you purchased the $52 gift certificate and now purchase the $15 add on you will pay $67 for all 12 patterns in the series.
If you purchased In Dreams for $9 and now wish to subscribe you will pay a total of $69 - $2 more than those who bought the gift certificate.
The point was not to offer a substantially better deal for those who purchased the gift certificate, but rather to provide a "one click" option for those knitters who wanted to put the series on their Christmas list.
I am very sorry for any confusion this has caused.
-Faramir in the Two Towers
Well, we are well on our way with the In Dreams KAL. Third clue comes out on Friday. We have over 650 lovely knitters participating in this Knit-a-long.

MAY JOIN AT ANY TIME - full pattern available in June
Lothlorien is due any day now, Kalkette is finishing her neckband today. Then I will write it up & get it out to all of the Fellowship subscribers later this week, or early next.
And my Mithril vest is nearing completion & heading into testing this week. It has been a real challenge, but well worth the wait. I am so pleased with how it has turned our Barring disaster, I should get it into your hot little hands in April.
Those two patterns will complete the first year of the Lord of the Rings Collection: The Fellowship of the Ring series.
And you know what that means...
I get to lie down and call, "UNCLE"?
No silly...it means it is time to continue on our way with the next series of patterns.

I do not have a firm schedule for the patterns, beyond a commitment to the first coming out May 1st and the others following every 4-8 weeks. Some will obviously take longer than others.
I want to be flexible - if a pattern is ready to release in four weeks, I don't want to hold it until a certain date. Conversely, if a pattern takes eight weeks to complete, I don't want to be pushed into release before it is truly ready. I hope you will understand my reluctance to place firm dates upon the series. Creativity is hard to structure.
I can promise you we will be done by the end of April 2012 and then we will move on to the final installment - The Return of the King.
It has been a year filled with challenges, friendship, and some great knitting. I hope those who subscribed last year, have enjoyed the Fellowship patterns. I know I had a lot of fun dreaming them up.
I hope you will join our merry band of LotR lunatics as we venture onto the plains of Rohan and continue our heroic journey.
