SoCK Meeting – Swatching

Join us as we talk about KNITTING DANGEROUSLY!! Wait, what? Dangerously? I’m talking about jumping into that new project with that yummy yarn without knitting a GAUGE SWATCH! Let’s bring it out of the shadows and talk about why you should be swatching and when you can get away with not swatching. Bring a swatch you’ve made up and we’ll talk about what it’s telling us. Don’t worry if you don’t have a swatch, there will be extras to share.

SoCK Meeting – Shadow Knitting

Have you heard of Shadow Knitting, or Illusion Knitting?  Join SoCK this month with Andrea Conrad from KIK. She will be presenting this technique.

Bring two colors of yarn, contrasting is better, a dark color and a lighter one.  You will also need to bring appropriate needles.  We will be working on a coaster

SoCK Meeting – Peace Pals

Join us in making Pocket Peace Pals with Kate Wilson!  Using scrap worsted weight yarn, cast on 32 stitches and knit 50 rows in a stripe pattern.  Then sew it up, stuff it,  add a few details, and you have a Pocket Peace Pal!  See the pattern here.

Bring in your Peace Pal ready to sew up, or bring scrap yarn and we’ll knit them up in the meeting.  Either way, we’ll have some great Pals to forward to children in global areas of conflict.

Please make the face area medium or dark brown.

SoCK Meeting – Discussion of yarn

What is yarn? Yarn by definition is a continuous often plied strand composed of either natural or man-made fibers or filaments and used in weaving and knitting to form cloth.  Have you wondered what ply is or what fiber options are available?  Join SoCK for a discussion on yarn.
