The Chix with Stix January program will be on finger knitting. This is a fun way to knit, it goes quickly, and no needles are needed! Bring a friend to learn this easy technique and get them started knitting. There’s no advance preparation. Just bring worsted weight yarn in 2-3 complementary colors, scissors, and a measuring tape.
At our KNOW meeting on January 28, well-known Katy artist and knitting instructor Sony Hartley will present her program which was originally scheduled for October. During the program, “Decorative Cast-on Techniques,” Sony will teach three different ways to cast on a knitting project: The I-cord Cast-on, Picot Cast-on, and Flower Cast-on. In order to participate, bring worsted-weight yarn, any type of knitting needles size 8-10, and a crochet hook size C or smaller. Sony will supply beads and flowers for our use. Please plan to attend what promises to be a fun and interesting program.
Jan Clark will take us through the techniques needed to make a mitered square project! Bring assorted colors of scrap yarn, a safety pin to mark your “right side” and appropriate size needles. Jan used sock yarn for her project. We will work through picking up stitches and double decreases. And we will discuss different mitered square projects to spark your imagination. Join us in the new year with mitered squares.

January program is “How to use your stash” with Doris Scott of Yarn Store Boutique. Bring any/all your stash yarns of any gauge. It will be put on a table and combined with everyone’s stash. Doris will help us to make a project. She will help us pick colors to blend yarn for the project. Also bring size 11 and size 13 needles. Do not worry about gauge as we will be knitting with 3 strands. If you have stash yarn that you want to retain but want to use for the project, do not place on center table. We will be making a small lap blanket either in stripes or fade.
