KNIT Meeting – Steeking

Steek!  Eek! – That’s the theme of our April meeting.  Be adventurous and join us as we boldly embark on an event where only fearless knitters dare…that is, cutting our knitting with courage and fortitude.  

Supplies

  • The pattern used for the project is “Steek This Coffee Cozy” by Rachel Henry, and it is free on Ravelry.  This is knitted in the round.
  • Worsted weight 100% wool (avoid superwash) – at least three colors
  • Circular needles or DPN appropriate for the yarn weight
  • Scissor

 

Homework

You can knit the cozy using the charted Fair Isle pattern given, or you can knit stripes, or your own pattern, or only one color.  

The important part is that you work the number of stitches called for (begins with only 49 and increases up to 53) for close to the number of rows given (only 25!).  

We will steek your knitting, make the band, and sew on buttons as time allows at the meeting. 

Scary, fun things (like roller coasters, haunted houses, etc.) are always more fun with friends.  Knit your cozy and come to the Steek! Eek! Meeting.  We will cut our knitting together!

KNOT Mtg – Dyeing Demo

Knitters North of Town (KNOT) will not be meeting at our regular time or place in July!  

Instead we will be meeting at 10:30am at Mohair &More (231 Gibbs Street,  New Waverly, Texas 77358) for a dying Demonstration with Louise and Bill Lane.  Yarn and fiber will be available for purchase as your canvas for dying and the artist in you will be revealed!  If you plan on attending please contact Louise at 936-661-8022.  This will give her an idea of how many to look forward to coming.  Bring your knitting and crochet and enjoy visiting with fiber friends.

KNOT Mtg – Triangular Loom

Tommie Merchant will be giving us a demo of working on her triangular loom.  Please join us in February for a unique and interesting program.

Part 2 of cast-on/bind offs will be in March!  

KNOT – Skills Night

The October meeting will be a SKILLS NIGHT, where a variety of small groups will be able to learn things such as: the knit linen stitch, crochet granny squares, and crocheting with beads, all taught by KNOT members.
