KNOT Meeting – Tips and Tricks

Tips and Tricks – Come share a Knitting tip or trick.  We will also have a  “garage sale” table where excess supplies and yarn can be yours at bargain prices.

KNOT Meeting – Pic-Knit

We’ll have our annual Pic-Knit with food, games, and fun. Please bring your Temperature scarves in progress.

KNOT Meeting – Happy Endings

Rescheduled from May 23rd:  “Happy Endings” will teach us some attractive ways to finish off our knitting projects.  The program will include Crab Stitch (crochet) and a couple of different I-cord bind offs.
 
A bit of homework:  Cast on about 18-20 stitches and knit 8 rows.  Use any scrap yarn you have on hand, preferably in a solid light color so that you can see the stitches clearly.  Don’t bind off; leave the stitches on your needles.  Please also bring a crochet hook about equal to the size of your needles.  If you don’t have a hook, we’ll have some available for you to use. 

Knit in Public Day

Saturday, June 8 is Knit in Public Day!

KNOT members invite other knitters to join them in the Food Court at The Woodlands Mall from 11am – ???.  Plan to knit as long as you like and then perhaps do a bit of shopping while you’re there.
