December KAL for Lace Doily Beret

Hi {!name_fix} - December's KAL for Lace Doily Beret wraps up the year of BOBBOL 2013 by bringing together some previously seen key techniques plus some new things to produce a flattering, lightweight beret that is fashionable without flattening your hairdo.

Get the pattern now with the free download link during December for KnitHeartStrings members. Just be sure to be logged in with your KnitHeartStrings Username so you see the Download Link rather than the Buy Link.

There also were a couple of posts earlier this week about the KAL in case you missed them: Next Up KAL and December KAL for Lace Doily Beret.

Submissions close Dec 10th for your pictures of Easy Elegance Mitts on the KAL Photo Sharing / Challenge page. (sorry, I mistakenly said Dec 5th in the last e-postcard after confusing the date with the pattern download availability for the December KAL.) So, if you think you missed the deadline, you did not! I certainly hope we can get more entries to make the Viewer's Choice voting a fun challenge with lots of beautiful choices. Multiplle photos and variations are welcome. If you need help submitting your photo(s), just let me know.

Congratulations to MaryAnn Lowrie, winner of the big assortment of Dale yarn in November's Giveaway. The December's Giveaway is a Special Edition kit with a beautiful combo of yarn and 2 colors of beads. See details and pictures on the Prize Giveaway page, along with information about how you can win this prize.

Let's knit! Jackie E-S
