It's time! Lacy Maizy Corn On (woops cast on)

Hi {!name_fix} - The August KAL page is up and ready for you to grab the Lacy Maizy pattern if you have not already sniffed it out.

Did you know that corn has been used to make yarn? The corn is coming in now, and although the corn around me here in Colorado is not likely destined for making yarn, the corn nevertheless reminds me of yarn, lol.

So for the August KAL, I thought it would be appropriate to the season to do a project with a corn theme. Lacy Maizy features crisp outlines of cable stitches against a lace background to resemble ears of corn and give a nod to maize yarn.

Featured technques for this month's KAL pattern are:
- lace patterning on every row
- cabling with or without a cable needle
- attaching fringe

I hope you'll join in. Let's get to knitting and have fun!

Congratulations to winners of the July Giveaway Prizes
- Linda Dawson, winner of the Kool Aid Dyeing Socks Kit
- Susan Havens, winner of the Knitted Teddy Bear Kit
See the Prize Giveaway page for more info. Watch for information about the August Giveaway Prizes coming soon. (Yes, that is plural — there will be 2 prizes again for August!)

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