Happy new year! We are going Beyond BOBBOL again in 2015 with projects tailored to appetizer portions of unique stitches and techniques made easy with KnitHeartStrings extra hand-holding KAL’s. Even if you already know how, I think you will find the projects fun (and who knows, you might even pick up a tip or trick along the way).

Each month’s KAL project will be selected with a focus on building skills in bit-sized steps. Some projects will be lace and some not. Some will be beads and some not. Some will go beyond lace and beads to try new things in other areas. There will be something for everyone. 

Leading up Beyond BOBBOL 2015: new, never before offered HeartStrings pattern

    KALS – These are my New Year resolution. 2015, I will knit at least 1/2 of the KAL you are giving us. And here to break this resolution (breaking one already) I cannot knit these towels embellishments. My mother made us do all our towels and sheets and pillowcases, etc, etc for our trousseau. I have despised them ever since. I just cannot made myself do another one. Terrible isn’t it? But I know that you will give us some other beautiful items to knit and I will do them.

    Happy New Year and Happy Knitting.

      Christiane, I am sorry you are put off by the thought of doing another towel after all the trousseau work! You could still maybe knit along and just do the lace edging pattern, then either attach to something else or maybe use to start the edge of something else knitted. There have been plenty of ideas along the way in our projects during 2012 – 2014 where lace edgings are used. Maybe using the lace edging instructions for this pattern for some other item inspired by previous projects might spark your interest?

What do you think?
