Calling all Chix members. We must discuss the future of the CHIX chapter. Hope to see you at the next meeting. Let’s see what’s on the needles and off. Let’s show and share.
- Need to be familiar with stranded knitting.
- Speed swatching in the round (watch How to Swatch in the round presented by Webs on YouTube).
We will continue working on the Flax or Flax light top. Paula has completed the body and will have at least one sleeve completed before the meeting so that we can discuss the process. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s progress. Before the meeting, she will post updated photos on Ravelry under Postlady.
We will meet virtually. If you need an link to the Zoom meeting, please email email@example.com for a link to the meeting.
It’s not too late to join the KAL for the Flax or Flax Light pullover. The pullover is a free pattern from TinCan Knits. Grab your yarn and needles, work up a swatch and choose your size. We will discuss your swatch, then cast on. I will be making an infant and adult size. I will be ahead so that you can view the process. If you have been wanting to venture into making garments, this is a perfect pattern to make 2021 the year of garments. Choose an infant or child size in a yarn equivalent to one you might like for yourself. (This can be your swatch/gauge for your future garment.)
If you are not a CHIX member but want to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a Zoom invitation.
CHIX meetings will still be continuing on Zoom. Please join us for a conversation and show and tell about your latest project. Bring to the discussion an interesting find in technique, pattern etc. Hope to see you there.
Our topic will be decorative grafting with live stitches. Hope to see you at the Zoom meeting on September 11th at 10:00 am.
Supplies: 2 contrast yarns, worsted weight, knitting needles and crochet hook in same size.
Homework: Make 2 swatches. Cast on 12 stitches with any method. Knit in stockinette for about 2 inches, ending with wrong side worked. Leave stitches on needles. Do not bind off stitches
