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.
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.
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.
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!
We will begin our Hot Christmas Knitting KAL at the August 14 meeting. Bring any Christmas crafting you want to work on. As a chapter, we will be working from Christmas Tree Advent Garland by Linda Regel (ravelry link: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/christmas-tree-advent-garland ). Bring your Christmas yarn and patterns – we can craft together and dream of cooler weather.
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.
NOTE! THIS IS ONE WEEK EARLIER THAN OUR USUAL MEETING DATE
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:
