KNOT Mtg – Dyeing Demo

Knitters North of Town (KNOT) will not be meeting at our regular time or place in July!  

Instead we will be meeting at 10:30am at Mohair &More (231 Gibbs Street,  New Waverly, Texas 77358) for a dying Demonstration with Louise and Bill Lane.  Yarn and fiber will be available for purchase as your canvas for dying and the artist in you will be revealed!  If you plan on attending please contact Louise at 936-661-8022.  This will give her an idea of how many to look forward to coming.  Bring your knitting and crochet and enjoy visiting with fiber friends.

KIK Mtg – Scrap Happy

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.com 

Materials: smooth, washable worsted yarn, scale for measuring yarn if you have one, size 7 needles (dpns or circular)
