Knitters North of Town will meet from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm on July 21 at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 26501 Border Street, Spring.

KNOT Meeting – Cast-ons

Not Your Everyday Cast-on – Come join us for an exploration of 3 useful, Not Your Everyday, cast-ons with Roxanne Rump! We will discuss techniques, along with when and where to use different cast-ons. Come armed with your questions and ideas.

KNOT Meeting – Avery Cowl KAL

We will be starting a knitalong in March. Last month we chose the pattern, a cowl called Avery designed by Kate Gagnon Osborn. This pattern is free on Ravelry and requires only one skein of a DK weight yarn. A sample of Avery will be available for you to see at the meeting in case you didn’t see it in January. 

KNOT Mtg – Fiber Fest from a Vendor

Shelley Martella, owner of Threads & Ewe, will speak about fiber festivals from the vendor’s side of the table.  Her online shop sells both yarn and quilting fabric, and she will bring some of each to sell.  Members who want something specific may contact Shelley prior to the meeting so that she can bring what they want.  www.threadsandewe.com

KNOT Mtg – Planning for the New Knit Year

We welcome all who would like to contribute to shaping our 2018 and 2019 Programs.  The second half of our meeting will be a sit, knit and share meeting.  All are welcome to attend and please introduce yourself to our new KNOT President, Susan Motycka.  Thank you Susan and we look forward to the upcoming knitting year! 

KNOT Mtg – Dyeing Demo

Knitters North of Town (KNOT) will not be meeting at our regular time or place in July!  

Instead we will be meeting at 10:30am at Mohair &More (231 Gibbs Street,  New Waverly, Texas 77358) for a dying Demonstration with Louise and Bill Lane.  Yarn and fiber will be available for purchase as your canvas for dying and the artist in you will be revealed!  If you plan on attending please contact Louise at 936-661-8022.  This will give her an idea of how many to look forward to coming.  Bring your knitting and crochet and enjoy visiting with fiber friends.
