Beyond BOBBOL Series
A darling little pattern project each month of 2014
Beyond BOBBOL 2014 carries on the tradition of learn-and-knit-a-longs for small projects while learning and practicing in bit-sized steps. If you have been avoiding learning to knit with beads or to knit lace or to try other new things because you think it is too hard, I am going to tempt you with a little project each month that involves just a few stitches.
2013′s BOBBOL Series for Bits of Beads/Bits of Lace expanded the popular Bits of Lace 2012 Series with additional types of small lace projects and the addition of projects for building skills in beading.
For 2014, we are set to go Beyond BOBBOL with projects to refine our skills in lace and beads, and add new ones. There will also be appetizer portions of some 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 project will be selected with a focus on building skills in bit-sized steps. Some projects in 2014 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.
