We will discuss being thankful and how knitting/crochet has changed our lives. We will also be making Christmas ornaments. Homework and supplies to be announced.
In our October meeting we are doing spooky stitches: kitchener stitch, circular knitting, etc.
Quick – Easy Gifts
* Member discussion ideas
* Members will make soap covers (Knitted & Crochet)
We will be sharing gadgets that make knitting/crochet easy. Please bring your favorite gadget that you use. We will be also making portable counters.
We will be putting together kits for the Scrap-happy Celebration Hats which will be distributed to area Head Start students. These make cute, colorful hats that are fun to make! Bring some smooth, washable worsted weight yarn from your stash. Partial skeins are prefect! As little as 10 grams of yarn will make one of the 5 color bands on the hat. Five balls are needed to make a hat. If you have a scale you use to weigh yarn, please bring it. We will be winding 10 gram balls to put in kits. Bring in your yarn already wound into 10 gram balls and receive an extra door prize ticket! If you want to get started on one of the hats, bring size 7 needles for knitting in the round. If you have questions, please contact me at knitatnightguildcharity@gmail.
Materials: smooth, washable worsted yarn, scale for measuring yarn if you have one, size 7 needles (dpns or circular)
The June 17th meeting will have no program other than relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.
The May 20th meeting will have no program other than relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.
We will have a yarn exchange. Bring a skein of yarn you no longer want. Draw a number at the meeting to determine the order for choosing a new skein that someone else brought.
The February program will be a sockathon, so bring a sock pattern, needles and yarn as we all knit socks. Helpers will be available to those first timers. Ann Furlough will teach casting on for 2 at a time socks, cuff down. For this you will need a 47″(or longer) circular needle.
It’s the start of the new year which means it’s resolution setting time! While you’ve probably set your 2017 personal and professional goals by now; join us in setting some craftier knitting and crochet goals.
