KIND Meeting – Dryer Balls

The KIND chapter will be making Dryer Balls!

Please bring wool yarn (not superwash wool) and felting needles, if you have them. The yarn can be scraps of wool, such as from an old sweater or any other wool item. Color does not matter.

KIND Meeting – Knitting Jewelry

The April’s program will have a presentation by Penny Hurst on knitting jewelry.

Penny will supply the materials unless you want a specific color bead, which you will need to bring. The beads should be no larger than 1/2 inch and you will need no more than 20-30.

KIND Meeting – “Swift” Magic

Do you have a device for winding hanks of yarn into balls? Jane will lead this program and help us learn all about this “swift”.


HOMEWORK: Bring your swift and yarn that needs winding!

KIND Meeting – Duplicate Knitting

Marsha Smith will show us how to do duplicate knitting.

In preparation, please knit a small swatch, using these instructions:

  • Using a smooth yarn, solid color, worsted or DK weight and appropriately sized needles, cast on 18 stitches.
  • Row 1 and 2: Knit
  • Row 3: Knit 18
  • Row 4: K2, P14, K2

KIND Meeting – Holiday Celebration

KIND will be having a holiday celebration!

All are asked to bring a savory or sweet dish to share.
Also, we will collect small toiletries to donate to a shelter or other charity.

KIND Meeting – Christmas Crafts

Join us for some knitted/crocheted/crafted Christmas ornaments or decorations!

Everyone is asked to bring any of these that they may have, no matter how long ago or recently. It would be helpful for you to bring the pattern and/or name of the yarn, if you can.

KIND Meeting – Dyeing with Kool Aid

For October Annie Foley will be teaching us how to dye yarn with Kool-Aid!!

We have seen her vibrant colors of yarn that she has done this way. This is an easy, fun and safe way to dye yarn.


  • Yarn and dye will be provided
  • Aprons optional.

**NOTE: Due to early voting at Bayland Community Center, our space is limited, so please email Barbara Hass (barhass323@gmail.com) if you are not a KIND member and would like to attend.

KIND Meeting – Favorite Things

For our September meeting, we will be sharing our favorite knitting/crocheting things – needles, yarn, patterns, etc.

Please bring yours and your items for Show and Share.
