Sybil Koempel will present a program on using charts for knitting colorwork. We will learn how to use and read colorwork charts. She will present examples of project knit from charts. There will be an exercise on making your own colorwork charts.
Tommie Merchant will be giving us a demo of working on her triangular loom. Please join us in February for a unique and interesting program.
Part 2 of cast-on/bind offs will be in March!
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.
Want to avoid the crowd? Then come celebrate Valentine’s Day with us for a heart-to-heart project. We will be knitting a cute, useful, easy and fun puffy heart. The pattern will be provided, and at the end of the evening everyone will receive a collection quick-knit heart patterns to get a head start on 2018 Valentine projects.
Supplies to Bring:
- Aran or worsted yarns in Valentine colors
- Size 7 or 8 needles
- Tapestry needle
In February we will be watching Lesson 1 – Introduction and Gauge Swatching. Please see the Facebook Event for more details.
It’s all about hearts….I will be bringing several small projects that you can finish and give to a sweetheart for valentine. Bring a skein of dk, worsted and bulky yarn with appropriate needle and hook sizes for each. There will be knitted and crocheted patterns. I will make each item so you can examine and make your choice. Oh, I almost forgot, let’s make the items in red or pink. I will do likewise.
The KNOT January meeting will focus on cast-on and bind-off pairs. This will be a member-led session featuring techniques that work well together. This is part 1 of 2.
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.
It’s a new year, so it’s time for SoCK’s Annual New Year, New Technique! Craftsy Class. This year we will be learning about making lace shawls. For the next four months (January – April), we’ll be watching the “My First Lace Shawl” class, taught by Anna Dalvi. You do not need to purchase the class to watch. But, if you want the pattern taught in the class, you do need to purchase it. So whether you’ve always been intimidated by lace and/or shawls, or you’ve whipped out a few hundred, come and learn!
SoCK will now be meeting at Taqueria Arandas. Our program will be a round table on our favorite Lace Shawl Patterns.
The Craftsy class will begin at next month’s meeting.
