Due to a number of technical difficulties, we will not be watching the remainder of the “My First Lace Shawl” Craftsy class. But never fear! For those of you wondering how to block your beautiful shawl, we got you covered. In June we will be holding a Round Table discussion on blocking. We will be discussing all the different ways to block projects (pinning, steaming, ironing, dryer) and which method works best for which type of fiber. So bring your blocking knowledge, questions, and that crumpled shawl that’s been banished to the back of the yarn closet.
Paula Fortenberry will present Kumihimo braiding! Please bring scissors that you don’t mind cutting paper with and two highly contrasting smooth yarns from dk to worsted.
The May 20th meeting will have no program other than relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.
Last month we were supposed to watch supposed to watch lessons 4 & 5, but technical difficulties prevented us from watching the lessons. So this month we’ll be watching them.
You do not need to purchase the class to attend the meetings, but if you want to view it on your own time, or if you want the pattern, you do need to purchase the class. Make sure to purchase it from the Craftsy link on the KANG website. (KANG gets a portion of the proceeds for every class purchased that way).
The schedule for the classes is:
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Paula is finally ready to auction off the long awaited knitted and crochet items. Bring all those bucks that have been passed out at the Chix’s meetings. You may combine your bucks or pass them along. At this time, there are 12 items and maybe more by meeting time. There will also be an introduction of illusion knitting, also known as shadow knitting. Please bring two highly contrast yarns like black and white in order to see great results. DK or worsted with needle size 1 to 2 sizes smaller than called for.
Chriztine Kirk will present a program on double knitting. The homework instructions will be emailed to the chapter members since it was a pdf document with multiple pages. If non-chapter member would like a copy, please email Pam Lee at email@example.com.
