Smoke Rings are a versatile accessory that offer a variety of design opportunities. Spark excitement in how you can use the canvas of a simple smoke ring to play around with Form, Stitch Pattern(s), Embellishment and Structure. Discussion and examples are included in the bit-size tutorial What Goes Into the Design of a Smoke Ring.
Other bit-size tutorials in this month's Smoke Ring KAL series are
- Picking a Yarn
- Sizing for a Custom Fit
Speaking of yarn, did you see that this month's Prize Drawing is for a Smoke Ring Kit with luxury baby alpaca/merino/angora yarn? More info on how you can win here.
This week I'm heading back to my studio in Louisiana, so will be off-line most of the time. Just wanted to let you know in case you contact me or need help and it takes a while for me to get back to you. Thanks for your patience.
Have a good knitting week!
