Last Call for Smoke Ring KAL Discount

Hi {!name_fix},

How are you doing with this month's KAL project for Smoke Ring with Lace Edging? I hope you are enjoying it!

There are just a couple of days to get the pattern at the KAL discount if you haven't already. You can go to the Smoke Ring KAL page now to get your pattern at 50% discount thru Oct 25, 2014 (or for free as part of your paid Basic or Premium membership). Be sure you are logged in so that you see the discounted pattern offer for your KnitHeartStrings member level.

To go along with this month's KAL, these articles about Smoke Rings are available to you as a KAL member at no extra cost:

- Picking a Yarn: 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.

- Sizing for a Custom Fit: If there is need to resize a smoke ring pattern, it will usually not be major amounts. One of these strategies will likely suffice.

- What Goes Into the Design of a Smoke Ring: 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.

Let me know if you have questions or are running into any problems knitting your smoke ring. There already are questions and answers posted in the comments on the KAL page and the above articles, so you can check there for extra tips and helpful comments, too.

I'm back in my Louisiana studio now and getting re-settled. After being without internet for several days after I got back (no need to bore you with the sad story), I am still scrambling to catch up on orders and emails. I appreciate your patience and will get back to you as soon as possible if you are waiting on me for something.

Remember that there's a special drawing this month for a Smoke Ring Kit with luxury baby alpaca/merino/angora yarn? If interested, check out how you can win the Prize Drawing.

Happy knitting,
