When I was a kid one of my favorite pass times was to read Dear Abby (hence the idea for Dear ELK Studio). Dear Abby was a daily column in the local newspapers and was always filled with juicy answers. (You can still find the column on-line). People would write to her asking for advice about all types of issues such as relationship, family or even love questions. I LOVED reading all her responses because they were short, sweet and to the point. It was all in fun anyway, but I’m sure some people took her answers very seriously.
Well, I’ve thought for a while what I could do to give back to all of you that take the time to come over to my blog. Why not do something like Dear Abby but call it Dear ELK Studio? I’m part of a few groups, as well as have one of my own, and someone is always asking some type of crochet related question. It could be on technique, pricing, or social media. Wouldn’t it be great to have a column where you, the crocheter, could email your questions and actually get an answer?
I’ve gathered a team of designers/crocheters to help me on this new venture. Each person brings their own set of skills and experience to the table. I feel it will only benefit everyone to have a strong team developed, but I must tell you that I’m relying on you to help me too!
How do you get your questions answered? Easy. Just email me, and I will post your questions here once a week on the blog. I think it will be fun and a great learning process.
You just need to remember the theory behind this column, it’s like Dear Abby, so the answers will be fun, short, sweet and to the point. This is not intended to get into full-blown tutorials (but we’ll definitely provide links to some). Think of it more like reading a newspaper column but on my blog!
I hope this has sparked some interest and you will join me by emailing me your questions! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day and be blessed!

After the first row, you’ll turn your work and the first dc is actually the last dc you made in row 1. Does that make sense? Let me know if you need help! You should think about joining the Wrapped in Warmth Crochet-Along on the shawl that happens to start today! ❤️
