Why twist?

Hi {!name_fix} - How are you doing with Lorna's Light for this month's Precious Treasures KAL? As a reminder, there's just one more day at the special KAL discount in case you were planning to get Lorna's Light pattern.

If you have not yet joined this month's knit-and-learn-along, there's still time. Just because the discount period ends does not mean we cannot keep knitting! We are still here for your questions, comments or photos, etc. We'd love to hear from you.

I expect that the p1tr (purl 1 twist right) stitch used in Lorna's Light might have been new to you. The Purl Right Twist tips and techniques article de-mystifies the reason for this twisted stitch manipulation, along with tips and alternatives you can try if you want.

If you missed previous support articles this month, here are quick links:
- The Challenge of Tiny.
- Counting Beads Needed for a Project

Next Up KAL
Next month, I promise we are going to have an easy, pleasy project as a rest from knitting tiny and tinier, lol. Get a preview of Charity Knitting Made Elegantly Simple. As our annual focus on charity knitting, everyone will have access to the main project patterns for free: a baby blanket and a smaller practice stitch bookmark pattern. Premium members will also get a special thank you companion shawl pattern.

Will you win? May Prize Giveaway
Keeping with this month's theme of transforming fine lace knitting into sparkly beaded jewelry, May's KAL Giveaway Prize is a Precious Treasures Kit with premium upgrade extras. This kit is the last of its kind in the lovely gray and amethyst colorway to knit a necklace purse like the original sample model. More info here.

Any questions? Just give me a shout-out. Happy knitting,
