Smoke Rings - Beautiful and Practical
Will you join us? October's KAL at KnitHeartStrings revisits lace edgings, the Bits of Lace focus area that started off KnitHeartStrings in 2012! Our project will be Smoke Ring with Lace Edging, a versatile accessory you can wear laid on your shoulders as a dressy cowl neckline, or pulled over your head for light-as-air warmth without messing you hairdo.
Mark your calendar for Oct 5, 2014 to get your pattern and start knitting. To prep now, see the Next Up KAL for
Shopping List, event dates and discount pattern offers that will be available Oct 5 - 25, 2014.
(Note: Premium members can get early access to the October pattern now for free with the special Ravelry Delivery coupon located in the Premium Area.)
The “smoke” part of the name smoke ring refers to the light-as-air fibers with superb warmth for their weight that are often used in making smoke rings. Read about Picking Your Yarn for characteristics to keep in mind as you choose the yarn to knit your smoke ring.
Congratulations to Mary Jo Schultz, winner of September's Prize Giveaway for The Skinny on Lace Kit.
In keeping with the Smoke Ring theme for this month’s KAL, the October Prize to be given away at the end of the month to a lucky winner (maybe you?) is a kit with luxury yarn and your choice of 2 patterns. For more information and entry details, click on over to Prize Drawing Giveaway.
