For our November meeting, Elizabeth Spies will continue her Brioche program. Last month we covered one color brioche. This month we will jump into two-color brioche. Elizabeth recommends you bring two yarns with high color contrast, and double pointed or circular needles a few sizes smaller than normal for your weight yarn. I love brioche and I hope you will fall in love too – come to our meeting and learn to love brioche!
At our meeting on Monday, November 26, 2018, longtime KNOW member and sock-knitting expert Lynn Hensley will present her program on “Sock Fundamentals.” Lynn will explain in detail basic sock construction and architecture, discuss the most popular heel and toe options, describe how and what to measure for a perfect fit, as well as talk about needle choices and appropriate yarns to use. This program is aimed toward knitters of all skill levels, so please join us.
Our KNOW Annual Holiday Party is scheduled for December 10, 2018, at Spring Creek Barbecue. If you’d like to participate in the (optional) gift exchange, please bring with you a wrapped, unlabeled knitting notion (or notions) worth approximately $15.

At our KNOW meeting on Monday, October 29, Janet Madden will present her program, “Weird and Wonky to Wonderful—Bash the Stash for Charity Knitting!” You will learn about the charitable organizations and related projects sponsored by each chapter, score some patterns, hear a few stories, and maybe find a new use for that strange skein stored somewhere in your stash. Bring yarn and needles to match. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired! Please plan to attend what promises to be a very enjoyable and worthwhile program.
