What's the Difference? Beret vs. Tam

Hi {!name_fix} - Before getting completely wrapped up in festivities this week, I wanted wish you happy holidays if you are celebrating. Also, to just check on how you are doing with December's KAL for Lace Doily Beret?

Please enjoy these newest support articles:

The Balanced 3-to-2 Decrease - Step-by-step photo tutorial.

Shaping the Lace Doily Beret vs. Tam - The techniques used to shape the Lace Doily Beret are discussed. Instructions for lengthening the body of the beret to make a deeper tam are also given.

I'm pleased to announce that Ellen C is the Viewer's Choice winner of last month's KAL photo submissions for Easy Elegance Mitts. Ellen selected the Flared Lace Smoke Ring pattern for her prize.

There's a new KAL Photo Gallery page where you can add your project photos anytime for any HeartStrings KAL patterns (even previous ones). The new gallery page is similar to what we had before with the old gallery, but using the new format and submission process which hopefully is easier and more user-friendly.

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 how to win on the Prize Giveaway page.

Hoppy holidays and knitting, 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
