This month, KNOW Member and lace knitter extraordinaire Janet Lauland will present a program for us called, “Lace Knitting Tips and Tricks.” Topics to be covered include choosing appropriate yarn and needles, lifelines, working with charts, and more. This particular program was written by our lace designer-in-residence and CHIX member Rose Williams, so you won’t want to miss it!
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.
Want your work to look professional? Want to see those lace stitches you toiled over bloom? Want to take your knitting up a level? Blocking is the answer!!
Our own Nancy Polychronopoulos will take us through the all important skill of blocking.
Bring your questions!
The days of boring stitch markers are over! This month we’ll be learning how to make our own. SoCK’s own Keena Kang will be demonstrating multiple techniques to make your stitch markers.
A supply list will be forthcoming.
Judith Gerst will teach us how to do two-color brioche.
This month’s program on Hand-Dying Yarn With Natural Dyes is being presented by Penny and Peggy of Sky Loom Weavers in Cat Springs, Texas. Penny and Peggy will talk about the process they use to create beautiful yarn using flowers, plants, and other natural materials, and show us how we can do it at home. They will also be bringing hand-dyed yarn from their shop that will be available for sale.
In our October meeting we are doing spooky stitches: kitchener stitch, circular knitting, etc.
Sue Werner will do a program on matching cast ons and bind offs.
