CHIX Zoom Meeting – Future of chapter

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.

CHIX Zoom Meeting – Duplicate knitting

Duplicate stitch is a simple way to add color to your knitting project. We will work this on any plain smooth stockinette base. You will need 2 smooth worsted contrast yarns and needles to match. Work a 4×4 stockinette swatch with base color.
Bring samples of duplicate projects to share.
Looking forward to working with you. Email knitatnightguildchix@gmail.com for access.

CHIX Meeting – Intarsia in the Round

Be ready to show your Dome Capitol Hat from last month. Learn how to KNIT INTARSIA IN THE ROUND. This technique has been a game changer for my colorwork projects.
  1. Need to be familiar with stranded knitting.
  2. Speed swatching in the round (watch How to Swatch in the round presented by Webs on YouTube).
SUPPLIES: any 2 contrasting smooth yarns, 3 removable markers, needles appropriate for your yarn.
HOMEWORK: Using any method cast on 20 stitches with DARKEST color and work FLAT in garter for one inch ending after working a purl row. Place markers after the 5th, 10th and 15th stitch. Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.

CHIX Meeting – The Capitol KAL

I would like to thank everyone that participated in the Flax KAL. Come and share your finished or unfinished sweater at the next meeting.
Our next project is The Capitol by Hinterm Stein. The pattern was first released as a free download. Come and join us for the March meeting and receive a copy. Looking forward to seeing you.
If you would like to attend our virtual meeting, please email knitatnightguildchix@gmail.com for a link to the meeting.

CHIX Meeting – Flax top

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 knitatnightguildchix@gmail.com for a link to the meeting.

CHIX – Pullover KAL

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 chix@knitatnight.org for a Zoom invitation.
