KIK is working on two sampler scarfs. “You CAN Do It scarf” and “Weston Sampler Scarf” Everyone at the August meeting could choose which one they wanted to do. The program for September will be a brief review of questions for the sampler scarfs and then a program on “Illusion” or “Shadow” knitting. Please email the President at knitatnightguildKik@gmail.com if you plan to attend. We want to have enough handouts. Materials needed are 2 balls of smooth worsted-weight yarn in contrasting colors and the needles sized appropriate for the yarn. Please no variegated or fancy yarns. The outcome should be a close knit. One color will be the base color and the other will show the hidden pattern. Come join us.
