KIK Meeting -Decreases on mitered squares

This month we have the honor of having our KANG President, Dolores Rose, show us the effect of different decreases on mitered squares.  We will need worsted weight yarn and appropriate size needles for the yarn. Yarn should be a smooth, solid light-colored yarn to show the effect best.  

KIK Meeting – Cables without cable needles

We meet at Kingwood Medical Center in the Kingwood room on the third Saturday of the month at 10 am. I’m looking forward to our April  20, 2019,  program with  Elizabeth Spies teaching us how to knit cables without cable needles. 

Materials needed are worsted weight yarn, in a solid, light color and a needle of the size normally used for that weight yarn

Homework.  Cast on 24 stitches and knit 4 rows even, then begin pattern as follows:

Row 1:  K2, P4, K4, P4, K4, P4, K2   
Row 2:  K6, P4, K4, P4, K6.  

Repeat rows 1 and 2 once more, for a total of 8 rows from the cast on edge.

KIK Meeting – One-color Brioche

Our KIK Chapter meeting will be Saturday, February 16th from 10:00 to 12:00 at the Kingwood Medical Center, in the Kingwood Room.  We are very fortunate to have Elizabeth Spies as our instructor, teaching us Brioche using one color.  Supplies needed are 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn in a light, solid color and knitting needles 1 to 2 sizes smaller than would be used for that weight yarn.  I am looking forward to the class.  Hope to see you there.

KIK Meeting – How to use your stash

Join us Saturday, January 19,2019 in the Kingwood room at the Kingwood Medical Center.  Our meeting is 10:00 to 12:00. 

January program is “How to use your stash” with Doris Scott of Yarn Store Boutique.  Bring any/all your stash yarns of any gauge.  It will be put on a table and combined with everyone’s stash.  Doris will help us to make a project. She will help us pick colors to blend yarn for the project.  Also bring size 11 and size 13 needles. Do not worry about gauge as we will be knitting with 3 strands. If you have stash yarn that you want  to retain but want to use for the project, do not place on center table. We will be making a small lap blanket either in stripes or fade.
