New tutorials, tips & techniques articles:
- I Hate to Purl and more about Beaded Garter Stitch: For those who hate to purl, or prefer to knit rather than purl, you will love beaded garter stitch used for making this month's Irish Coffee Cozy. This article also goes into other characteristics that set Beaded Garter Stitch apart.

Need Supplies?
If you need beads or yarn+beads to make Irish Coffee Cozies, see the Supplies Paks and new Beads section of the KnitHeartStrings Online Store. I don't want to give you any excuse to not be knitting with beads!

Monthly Prize
No other month of the year says "pink" to me as much as February. How about you? So, for the February giveaway, I've put together a special edition "pink" kit of yarn and beads for you to play with and create whatever your heart desires. See more about Heart's Desire Prize and how to enter the drawing.

Happy knitting and beading! Jackie E-S / HeartStrings FiberArts
