i know a lot of our kal members are trying out new things and there are a lot of hats being made with interesting techniques. there are also a lot of lace work and cables happening so i thought i would use today's post to link up some of our handy resources so if you happen to get stuck or are still deciding on your project but needed a bit more helpful info before you jumped in i hope these help you out! please remember we also have a very active ravelry group that is always more than willing to help knitters out and to answer any questions. so don't be shy - join the fun!

|| LACE KNITTING AND KNITTED LACE ||
i adore lace and knitting it. i also like to get others to not be so frightened or overwhelmed by lace knitting and knitted lace. here's a post i did with a fun rundown on the ins and outs of lace.
