Starting with the Summer 2015 issue, Creative Knitting we will be featuring a new advice column!
Teacher and knitwear designer, Patty Lyons will be like our knitting “Dear Abby.” We’re seeking funny, interesting emails to feature from great knitters.
Ask Patty Anything!
Share techniques, tips, knitting etiquette, lifestyle questions, you name it. It doesn’t matter how silly you think it is. (in fact, we encourage the silly, as it helps us keep our life in perspective)
Here are some quick examples:
- What’s the best short row method for a scarf?
- What are the tricks to keeping your sanity when knitting lace?
- How do you avoid killing your spouse when he moves your shawl off the couch making your delicate stitches slip off the needle and your stitch markers tumble to the floor?
Please write them in letter form, just like the old letter’s to Dear Abby. If we’re able, we’d love to feature the full letter in the column, not just the questions, so have fun with it! Let’s all learn from each other and let’s start talking knitting!
Email your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
