Otterwise Mystery Stranded KAL

Today marks the start of a new adventure. I am having a Mystery Stranded Knit-a-long via my forum on Ravelry, Otterphiles. It will include a mini-tutorial for those who have not worked with stranded knitting techniques before, but it assumes you already know how to knit in the round.
Directions will be provided for both a pair of fingerless mitts, and a hat.
It will be a pattern released one part each week until you have worked the entire pattern.
This first week's pdf is about tips, tricks and techniques, as well as working a gauge swatch (I have provided directions for either a standard swatch, or a small cuff you can make for the purpose.)
If you are interested in joining, please email me at ottergal AT comcast DOT net. Signs up are open all week, and the second pdf will be sent out a week from today.

Now this sounds interesting! Can you give a hint about the yarn requirements and the number of colors needed? (I need another project like I need a hole in the head. . . but this sounds fun!)
