 HeartStrings Knitterly News #143 :: February 2013 

Warm Hearts Comfortghan

Meet Jackie E-S
Hi there {!name_fix} -

In honor of Valentine's Day this month, HeartStrings celebrates Love and Friendship with hearts and specials for both gifting and getting. Read on for details.

Of course, I had to feature hearts in this month's newsletter banner and intro. It's HeartStrings' signature design for cascading, interlocked hearts — shown here on the Cascading Hearts Faroese Shawl (top banner) and the Thinking of You Scarf (left inset photo). Also, don't miss seeing the new pattern in the Spring 2013 collection for Thinking of You Too (a play on words for an encore design that takes its form as a lovely hat to coordinate with Thinking of You Scarf).

I am excited to announce the first of the Spring 2013 collection of 5 new patterns is available now in both pdf and printed format.

Additionally, there's a pretty preemie hat pattern in the BOBBOL 2013 Series that is free this month to KnitHeartStrings knit-along members.

Please let me know if you are receiving duplicate newsletters and I will be glad to help set up your subscription for your preferred email address only. Thank you for your help.

Enjoy the newsletter!

From Kathy F: "All of the things you post are so beautiful. i have been donating to a charity for preemies for several years and have wanted a pattern for something very pretty, not just your every day beanie. This is exactly what i have been waiting for and cannot wait to get started. Want to find exactly the right yarn so the hat will look remarkable on this precious little one. God bless.."

You don't need fancy needles to string beads. Use something you probably already have on hand. Read more about Simple Beading Needle Options
