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.
The October meeting of KIK will be a Roundtable share from members who have been on a yarn crawl, went to a workshop or trunk show recently. Tell us about what you learned and where you’ve been!
The KIK Chapter was honored with a surprise visit on Saturday September 17 from VFW District 4 Commander Cecil McConnell. He presented KANG and KIK with certificates to thank us for all the hard work and donations to the Littlest Patriots program.
The Littlest Patriots program provides care packages for pregnant veterans or their wives or those that have had just had a baby. Knitted/crocheted baby hats, booties, and blankets have been generously donated by KANG members to go in these packages.
Mr. McConnell came in dress uniform to present us with the certificates and he shared with us an account of a baby shower that was held with a surprise there too! One of the expectant mothers went into labor at the shower!
It was wonderful to hear a first hand account of how helpful these gifts can be.
Mr. McConnell is the husband of one of our members, Lauren McConnell.
KIK Chapter President
