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.
Join us Saturday, January 19,2019 in the Kingwood room at the Kingwood Medical Center. Our meeting is 10:00 to 12:00.
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.
