    Jade Hat from LK issue 57...

    Hi Susie, I have measured the tension and you are correct it should be 22 rows, the top of the hat measures 13-14cm. I will put the tension correction up on our website Thanks Abbie

    Bluebell Jumper - Issue 54

    Hi Loubel, This is correct - the armhole is shaping is lower down as the 'girth' of the arm is less in the smaller sizes so the armhole shaping starts further up. Hope this helps Abbie
  4. Here at LK we love KALs, group projects and our forum challenges. This month sees the start of the Ravelry games where knitters will be casting on a project after the opening ceremony, casting off before the closing and will be competing in lots of fun categories. The question of the month is, do you like knitting challenges? We'd love to hear from you!

    Hello all, I'm looking for a few knitting clubs to be our club of the month. It's great promotion for your group and you get to see your faces in print. Just answer the following questions and email me (abbie.southern@aceville.co.uk) with the answers and a snap of the group. Each question needs roughly 50-100 words and feel free to contact me with any queries. About us...When did you start? How many people attend? What skill levels are there? The best thing about knitting together is...... On the needles right now..... What projects do the group have on the go at the moment? Our club motto is... or another funny fact Thanks so much for your help Abbie
