Drum roll … this new Knit HeartStrings membership site is still barebones. But I don’t see any reason to hold off rolling out the first pattern of the 2012 series for Bits of Lace now. I have lots of other features and content planned to add to the site. So I hope you will join in now to start taking advantage of it all.
I’m sending out the announcement tonight to almost 700 members of my HeartStrings newsletter who have already signed up for Bits of Lace. I would keep my fingers crossed that there are no major hiccups with the new site, but then I wouldn’t be able to knit! Sometimes computers drive me crazy.
I’m planning to have a darling little lace pattern project each month of 2012 that will take only a bit of materials (so it doesn’t put a dent in the pocketbook) and a small amount of time (to better squeeze into our busy lives).
I’ll be posting tips and tricks all along. And it is a chance for all members to join in the conversation by posting comments and photos. If there is a question, or just want to contribute other ideas and variations you are doing, that is fine, too!
Knitted lace edgings are a beautiful addition to garments, linens, and accessories. Because these trims are typically done on just a few stitches, they are a practical way to explore the structure and techniques of knitted lace. Each project will take just a small amount of materials and time. Enjoy!
