Welcome to My First Knit Wits Newsletter
Knit Wits February 2021 by Janice Jones |Published 02-04-2021
Hi, Janice Here, the new owner of smart-knit-crocheting.
I'm so glad you took a minute out of your busy schedule to open this newsletter. I want you to know that I will be busy working on this site, creating new material, and adding valuable free resources to keep your crochet or knit hobby alive and well. I hope you enjoy it and please, don't forget to share if you find it helpful.
If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, you may be as chilly as I am sitting here writing this newsletter. What could be better in the winter but a warm cup of cocoa or your favorite beverage and some snuggly things to warm your heart.
Let's start with a beginner project to keep your hands warm. These fingerless mitts work up fast even for a beginner and can be kept or given away as a small Valentine's Day Gift.
Need a little warmth around your neck? Why not make a quick crochet scarf for those extra cold days. Smart-knit-crocheting.com has started a new section for those who are new to either knitting and/or crocheting or would love to have a quick tutorial or a place where you can bookmark for future reference.
And, while you're keeping yourself warm, don't forget about your furbaby. He needs a warm sweater to wear around the house or on a rump in the park. (Oh, and yes, that's my dog Dana, modeling a crocheted dog sweater I made for her to keep out the chill)
I am adding new information daily to help anyone new to Crochet. Each page will cover a new tutorial about a crochet stitch, how to read a pattern, supplies to purchase, and other instructions that all beginners need to know.
Here are a few of the articles that have been completed. Remember this is just a start. Check back frequently as new information is added regularly. Here are a few pages to get you started:
If you are new to knitting, you're in luck because I'm adding the same type of knitting tutorials as I am for those who love crochet. Remember, this is a work in progress so bookmark and come back regularly. I also plan to begin a YouTube channel that will walk you step by step through how to begin and master the craft of knitting (and crocheting)
I hope you have enjoyed this Knit Wits February 2021 newsletter (my first since taking over Smart Knit Crocheting) and maybe you even found it a little helpful. If you do, I'd be so humbled if you would share it with your crafting friends.
