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. 


KNIT Meeting – Take a break!

Everyone needs a break! Join us Tuesday, March 13 during Spring Break Week. There is no program in March and we will use this time to knit and socialize. What were your best Spring Break getaways and where would you like to go next? Bring your stories and memories, and share them with the group.

KNIT Mtg – Crochet Basics

Are you Bi-crafty?  Our own Linda Demaray will introduce us to crochet basics!  If you knit, crochet makes wonderful edging and cast-ons.  If you crochet, please come and help those of us as we learn to crochet.  No homework; just bring a J or K hook and some worsted weight yarn!

KNIT Mtg – Blocking

Want your work to look professional? Want to see those lace stitches you toiled over bloom? Want to take your knitting up a level? Blocking is the answer!!
Our own Nancy Polychronopoulos will take us through the all important skill of blocking.
Bring your questions!

KNIT Mtg – Cowl KAL

Join us as we begin our KNIT COWL KAL! You choose from three patterns: Makes Me Happy Cowl by Diane L. Augustin; Amazing Day Cowl by Beth Garbo; and The Sampler Cowl by Heather Lynch. We will begin each pattern during the meeting, including casting on and joining in the round and provisional cast-on. Bring your needles, yarn, pattern, and stitch markers (for joining in the round, removable stitch markers will be helpful).


  • Choose your pattern and yarn
  • Swatch for the gauge specified in the pattern you will be working.

KNIT Mtg – Technology Tour

Have you wondered why our guild doesn’t have a website (we totally do!)? Do you worry about deleting your newsletter and then forgetting what the next meeting is about and what the homework was? Need to contact our guild treasurer about that retreat you just bought twice but can’t find her email address? Have you always wondered how to do a search on Ravelry or post to the Guild Facebook page? Then join us for a fun filled adventure through the yarny interwebs in all of its glory. Bring all of your most burning techy questions for Sarah to answer half of them while trying not to cry.

Materials to bring:
Your thinking cap
Your favorite techy device (if you’d like to follow along or get technical help at the end)

Also, our Presdient will be presenting information on our KNIT Cowl KAL. We have pattern information in our ravelry thread. We will discuss this KAL and begin voting on a pattern! I look forward to knitting with you.

KNIT Mtg – Celebrating KNITter-ship

Come and join us for an evening celebrating KNITter-ship.  There is no specific program other than socializing and enjoying each other’s company as we wrap up the year.  A few KNITters will be providing snacks and finger foods.  If you have a couple of hours to spare, let’s get together and mingle!
