CHIX Meeting – Finger Knitting

The Chix with Stix January program will be on finger knitting.  This is a fun way to  knit, it goes quickly, and no needles are needed!  Bring a friend to learn this easy technique and get them started knitting.  There’s no advance preparation.  Just bring worsted weight yarn in 2-3 complementary colors, scissors, and a measuring tape.

Chix would like to invite you to their holiday meeting.  Bring a dish to share.  We will again be donating toiletries to the Star of Hope.  Everyone is always welcome.

And bring last month’s project so we can finish turning circles into squares.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  We will be finalizing plans for our Christmas/Holiday gathering.
