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.
For our program, Roxanne Rump with share her research on shawls.
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
Our next meeting will be from 6:30-8:30pm on September 28 at a new yarn shop, Yarn Haven and Boutique, 8900 Eastloch Drive, Suite 300in Spring.

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.

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.
It will be a summer “pic-knit”. Bring your favorite potluck dish to share and get ready for a night of social knitting. We’ll also be discussing plans for attending Houston’s FiberFest, which starts the next day.
Paula Fortenberry will present Kumihimo braiding! Please bring scissors that you don’t mind cutting paper with and two highly contrasting smooth yarns from dk to worsted.
