KNOW Meeting – Blocking

At our meeting on Monday, August 27, expert knitter and longtime Guild member Nancy Polychronopolous will present an extensive program on Blocking. If you want your knitting to look professional, your lace projects to be beautifully perfected, and your stitches to be smooth and even, this is the program for you. Nancy will describe different types of blocking suitable for our various types of knitted items. Be sure to plan to attend this essential, very informative meeting.

KNOT Meeting – Italian Cast-on

Marilee Belanger will be teaching the Italian cast-on and various places where it’s a good one to use.  Please bring some scrap yarn and needles of the appropriate size to use for this cast-on.  There is no homework. 

KIK Meeting – Gift Exchange

Please bring a knitting – crochet item valued at no more than $10.00 for a gift exchange.  We will have a game that goes along with the gift exchange.  We will discuss choices for November’s Christmas Ornament.  AND we will continue to accept new member registrations and renewals for KANG Membership.  Please remember that our dues support the budget for the new KANG year.  

SoCK Meeting – Planning meeting

Come share where you have been this summer.  Welcome to all our new members, and a call out to our SoCK membership – it’s time to plan the next year of programs!  Bring your ideas and help plan.  Also please bring a kitchen scale to weigh yarn, left-over acrylic soft yarn, size six and seven dpns or circular needles.  Bring what you have, but no worries if you don’t have any of these things.  We will be working on the Pre-K Headstart Hats.  Looking forward to seeing everyone!

KIK Meeting – Preparing for the next year

We will be discussing a new position available and rewarding members and officers for the 2017-2018 year as well as preparing for the new 2018-2019 KIK agenda.  Refreshments will be provided.  

KNOW Meeting – Christmas in July

Please plan to join in the festivities at KNOW on July 30 at our “Christmas in July” knit-in.  We will be knitting and crocheting seasonal decorations and tree ornaments as we get a head start on the Holidays!  Bring your favorite homemade decoration to share.  We will have patterns and plenty of Knit Picks worsted-weight yarn available, in addition to a supply of beads, sequins, ribbon, stuffing, and other trimmings you may use to decorate your finished project.  Just bring assorted knitting needles (sizes 5-8), a crochet hook (size F), and your bag of notions. Holiday goodies will be served, so save room for dessert!  
 

We will also be voting on Chapter Officers to fill positions for the coming year, so come prepared to participate in the voting process.  In addition, we will be collecting dues.  You may pay your annual membership fee at the meeting by cash or check ($25.00).  
 
Many of our members arrive at the restaurant early to have dinner.  We encourage this custom, as Spring Creek Barbecue has never charged us for the use of their conference room, and we appreciate it!  Everyone is welcome.  We look forward to seeing you there!

KNOT Meeting – Double Hooking

NOTE!  THIS IS ONE WEEK EARLIER THAN OUR USUAL MEETING DATE 

 
Knitters North of Town will meet from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm on July 21 at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 26501 Border Street, Spring.

Bryne Scheinman-Miller will demonstrate Double Hooking, a type of crochet done using a special tool with a hook on each end.  We’ll be having our annual Pic-Knit.  The chapter will provide fried chicken and drinks; members are asked to bring a picnic-type side dish to share. 

 

SoCK Meeting – Post Fiber Fest Show & Share

Post Houston Fiber Fest Giant Show & Share and One Skein Pattern Exchange
 
We all bought stuff at Houston Fiber Fest and we want to show it off (and we all want to see what you bought).  Bring your goodies for a giant show & share.   This will then be followed by a one skein pattern exchange, because we have that one skein of fabulous yarn we had to have and now have no idea what to do with it.  So bring your favorite one skein patterns (all sizes of yarn are welcome) to discuss and share.

CHIX meeting – Lunch and knitting time

The Peace Pals project formerly scheduled for July has been postponed due to vacations.  Instead, we will have a lunch catered by Jason’s Deli followed by time to visit and knit.  This would be a good time to work on the rectangle for the Peace Pals dolls which will be finished and stuffed in a later meeting.  The link for the patterns are here:
