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.
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE, LOCATION & TIME CHANGE for this meeting.

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.
We are continuing our Hot Christmas Knitting KAL – bring a project that you are working on for Christmas. Don’t let the holidays sneak up on you this year!

Enjoy the cool air-conditioning in our meeting room and knit for cooler days.
