SoCK Meeting – Joining Yarn

June 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Description:Most of us have a favorite way to join yarns when adding a new ball of yarn or changing colors in a project.  The program on joining yarns will present five methods of joining yarn: overlapping yarn; felted splice; double knot; Russian join; invisible braided join.  You will learn some advantages and disadvantages of each method and types of yarn required.  

Homework

Please bring 10 lengths of yarn, each about 8 inches long.  At least two pairs should be plied, worsted weight, wool yarn. Other pairs may be synthetic plant or animal fibers. A sharp tapestry needle.

Additional Materials: On the KANG website under “members” you will find a drop-down menu that includes Handouts for each chapter. Please copy the first page of the handout on joining. The second page on the Clasp and Weft join in B & W is not very clean. People who would like to try that method using in weaving can download it for themselves from the website.
