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.
KNOT (Knitters North of Town) has a change in our May program. Sarah Paul of Wild Dahlia will present our May 23 program. Sarah is a spinner, hand-dyer and felter who will bring some of her tools and tell us how she creates her lovely designs. Sarah was at Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta last weekend and will be at Houston Fiber Fest on June 21-23.
The “Happy Endings” program has been postponed until the June meeting.
“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.
Nancy Polychronopoulos will tell us all we need to know about Houston Fiber Fest which will be held June 21st – Jun 23rd at the Berry Center.
Roxanne Rump will lead an interactive discussion on some common sweater types, focusing on design considerations and pros and cons of each type of construction. Examples and patterns will be available to demonstrate the concepts discussed.
Our January program will be “An International Yarn Crawl: Past and Present” by Kristi Boehm and Carolyn Boyd.
KNOT’s December meeting and holiday party will be Thursday, December 20th, from 6:30-8:30 pm. The meeting will be held at Uncle Julio’s Mexican Restaurant, 6835 N Grand Pkwy W, in Spring. The restaurant is located at the intersection of 99 (Grand Parkway) and Kuykendahl. There will be a swap of knitting accessories/knitting tools with a $15 limit. Hope to see you there!
Please note that this is one week early due to Thanksgiving.
Our December meeting will also be held early, on December 20th.
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE, LOCATION & TIME CHANGE for this meeting.
Marilee Belanger will be teaching the Italian cast-on and various places where it’s a good one to use. Please bring some scrap yarn and needles of the appropriate size to use for this cast-on. There is no homework.
