KNOW Meeting – Celebration of Charity Knitting

We’ll share patterns, recommendations for projects and techniques, items we’ve made (a show and share for charity items) and of course we’ll knit charity items.

Members are also invited to show and share any of your completed projects.

 

Members often arrive early to visit over dinner and show their support to the restaurant for their generosity in allowing us to meet there. Visitors and members from other chapters are always welcome.

KNOW Meeting – Summer Tops

KNOW’s April program will be on “Summer Tops for Houston”.

Summer is just around the corner, and it’s time to be inspired by your fellow knitters’ creations and planned projects. All members are invited to wear or bring a Summer Top to our meeting. We’d also encourage everyone to bring a list of favorite designers, patterns, and styles to share and discuss. We’d like to have a yarn taste, so bring any scrap yarn or stash yarn suitable for summer tops, such as linens, cottons, or silk blends.

Members are also invited to show and share any of your completed projects.

KNOW Meeting – Twisted Traveling Stitches

KNOW’s October program will be Twisted Traveling Stitches presented by Amy Rodgers.

This technique is associated with fine wool knitting on gloves and socks from the Bavarian region of Germany. She will introduce a simple pumpkin motif chart composed of zigs, zags, and twists.
In a break from tradition, we will be making it a back-and-forth design. Participants can choose between making a beverage coaster or a face/dish cloth.
  • If you want to make a beverage coaster, bring wool fingering or sport weight yarn and appropriate size needles
  • If you prefer face or dish clothes, bring a worsted weight cotton or linen
*Note: Amy’s tip is that sharper tapered points may be helpful since no cable needles are used!

September’s program will be all about buttonholes!

If you have not already renewed your membership, please do so at the meeting.

KNOW Meeting – Reflections & Programs

In August, we will reflect on the various pandemic projects and any fiber lessons learned in the last year.
Come prepared to discuss the direction KNOW should take in the coming year. We are particularly interested in program requests or offers to present to the chapter. We would also like to discuss any other issues our members might have regarding KNOW.
