Sock it to me!

Join us on January 30, 2016 from 9am-3pm for the SockItToMe Knit/Crochet Clinic at St Anne de Beaupre Church, 2810 Link Road, Houston. Reservations to workshops@knitatnight.org requested by Jan 23 so we’ll be sure to have enough handouts to go around.

Rose Williams will teach the Fish Lips Kiss sock heel, Virginia Martinez will assist with crocheted socks, Cindy Long will be our advisor for anybody having problems with a current sock project, and we’ll also have a class for sock newbies.

Things to bring:
Newbies: light-colored worsted weight wool and your choice of size 7 or 8 needles (DPNs, two circs or one extra long circular for Magic Loop)
Crocheted socks: light-colored worsted weight wool and size G or H crochet hook
Fish Lips Kiss homework: Cast on 36 stitches with light colored worsted weight yarn. Join to knit in the round and work 10-12 rounds. Use your choice of Magic Loop, two circs, or DPNs.
Problem socks: Bring your sock-in-progress and the complete pattern.

2016 Camp Allen retreat

Join us for the annual KANG retreat held at Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas.  The dates are Friday, Feb 12th thru Sunday Feb 14, and we check out around 11am so we can spend the rest of the day with our Valentines.

We will have nice room to knit/crochet/spin in and socialize in, and a classroom where we will hold 4 mini-sessions.  We will be learning Magic Loop, and then learn how to do the Flegle heel.  We are going to learn how to read our knitting and how to correct some mistakes we have all made.  We are going to learn exercises for our hands to keep them in shape for crafting and some wonderful aromatherapy, also.

The price is $225.00 if paid by check or $ 232.00 if paid by PayPal.  The price is for dinner Friday evening, all 3 meals Saturday, and breakfast Sunday and your double occupancy room Friday and Saturday and the mini-sessions.

Registration is now open! If paying by check, you can pay half when you sign up and the other half will be due Jan. 10, 2016.  And you will be notified when we receive your check and that you are signed up.

If you have any questions, please email Ann Cole at retreat@knitatnight.org

Head start hats

Check out these adorable hats knit for the Head Start Program:Head start

 Want to help out with charity knitting? The Head Start Program accepts hats that fit 3- to 4-year-old children. We recommend The Scrappy-Happy Celebration Hat pattern, available free on Ravelry. For a 3 to 4 year old, cast on 80 (instead of 96 called for in the pattern).  For the remainder of the hat, follow the pattern as written.  You may use a size 6 needle on the ribbing and switch to a size 7 for the rest of the hat or knit the whole hat with a size 7.
