Dear Abby for Knitters!

Dear Abby for Knitters!

I’m so excited to announce my new column for KNITstyle magazine. The magazine has been totally reinvented by the new editor Cari Clement, and I’m so proud to be a part of it . . . but I need your help.  I need letters from you amazing knitters out there.

Coming soon in KNITstyle magazine! A new knitter’s advice column called “Patty’s Purls of Wisdom.” We are looking for great, funny, interesting e-mails to feature from great knitters. We are here to talk about ANYTHING: techniques, tips, how-tos, knitting etiquette, lifestyle questions, you name 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).


Questions like:
– 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. 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! So e-mail your questions to:

E-mail Patty’s Purl’s of Wisdom (

We look forward to reading your letters, and stay tuned for the first column of “Patty’s Purls of Wisdom.”
