Knitting (and Beading) Around the Rounds

Hi {!name_fix} - How are you doing with December's KAL for Lace Doily Beret? If you are busy with holiday preps instead, I hope you will at least have time to get the free download for the pattern now to knit later. Just be sure to be logged in with your KnitHeartStrings Username so you see the Download button rather than the Buy button.

For those of you knitting lace beret(s) now for gifts or for yourself, please enjoy these newest support articles posted earlier this week:

- The Lace Doily Beret pattern instructions do not specifically call for beads, but it's easy to add them if you'd like extra bling. Thoughts on Beading the Lace Doily Beret

- December's KAL for Lace Doily Beret wraps up 2013 with some review techniques as well as new ones to continue taking the art of knitting to new heights. Read
Starting the Lace Doily Beret and
Making It Around the Rounds

Aren't interested in making a beret? You still can learn and knit along by making a pretty thread doily. Bonus: Guidelines to Make a Thread Doily from the Lace Doily Beret Pattern

Please come by and vote for your 3 favorites of the project photos submitted for last month's KAL of Easy Elegance Mitts on the KAL Photo Sharing / Challenge page. It's just for fun, but you can help someone win their choice of pattern. (Note: although we have some lovely project photo submissions, overall there has been minimal participation in this event. Is there something else you would prefer?)

Wrapping up this year's BOBBOL focus on beads, 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. Will you be the winner?

Have a great weekend! Jackie E-S

p.s. It's been a great year because of you. Thank you for participating in BOBBOL 2013. I hope you will continue to knit along in 2014 for Small Projects with Big Impact (ideas for a cute name or acronym?). Please help me spread the word and invite your friends to join at
