KNOW Meeting – Slip Stitch Edge

KNOW’s January meeting will be a program called “Tricks with a Slip Stitch Edge” presented by Amy Rodgers.

The topic is the first and last stitches when knitting flat with single point needles. If you would like to stitch along bring two colors of DK or Worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles. Members are also invited to show and share any knitting gifts they received. As always, we’d love to see any of your completed projects.

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

We’re looking forward to seeing you on January 31st!

KIK Meeting – Yarn Mysteries

The Mysteries of Yarn

We will discuss the characteristics of yarn, including weights, the numbering system for yarn weights, how to determine the weight of your yarn in case you’ve lost the label, and tips for determining the fiber content. We will also learn how to determine the amount of yarn needed for a project if you are using a different yarn than specified in the pattern, and how to estimate yarn amounts for a pattern you are creating. Bring some scrap yarn and appropriate size needles for knitting a swatch.
