Spring Charity Knit-In 2018

As always, the knit-in is open to anyone who likes to knit and/or crochet for charity.  Please help spread the word! Feel free to bring a food item to share with the group.  We will have an oven and a microwave to heat up food.  Water, coffee, and tea will be provided.  

 
The first 25 people to check-in will receive a door prize.  We will have a drawing for three raffle prizes at the end of the knit-in.  Everyone can earn one raffle ticket for each of the following and there is no limit to how many tickets you can earn:
  •  Attend the event
  •  Bring a non-member guest
  •  Turn in a completed, handmade charity item
  •  Donate a ball of acrylic/washable yarn for charity
 
We will play a knitting related game. Participation in the game is purely voluntary and the winners will receive prizes. If you want to play, be sure to bring your knitting notions.  Game rules will be revealed at the knit-in.  
 
To RSVP for the knit-in, please email  knitatnightguildcharity@gmail.com with the names of the people in your group (which will help me with the preparation of door prizes), and also email me if you have ideas/projects for charity knitting or any questions.

CHIX – Crochet Borders for Knitted Projects

Chix will have Tamara Gooderham as our guest speaker. Tamara will begin her presentation at 10:10 am.  Please be prompt.

Homework will be as follows:
      Knit a square approximately 5″ by 5″ in a worsted weight yarn in stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row).
      Don’t cast on or bind off too tightly since we will crochet into these stitches.
      A smooth light colored yarn would best.
      Please block the square beforehand and bind in the ends.
Bring:
  • the knitted stockinette stitch square
  • more yarn in the same color
  • 4 stitch markers to put in the corners
  • a crochet hook half a metric size larger than the needle size used
  • (If you use size 7 / 4.5 mm needles bring a size 8 H 5mm crochet hook).
Skills required: Need to know how to do chain, single and double crochet stitches.
