KNOW Meeting – KAL: Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf

KNOW’s July program will be a knit-along presented by Jan Clark. We will be knitting the “Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf“, which is a free pattern available on Ravelry (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/multidirectional-diagonal-scarf).

 

This scarf looks great with variegated or self-striping yarn. A good yarn to try would be a DK weight, knit with size 6 needles, or try a heavier yarn with appropriate needles for a faster finish. You can use the same yarn throughout or different yarns in each triangular section of the scarf as a way to use some leftover stash yarn. It’s also possible to use two yarns held together for a different look. There are so many possibilities that you may want to make more than one!

This is a fun project for knitters with limited experience and for highly skilled knitters. If you have not previously knit short rows, this is your opportunity to learn!!

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.

KIND Meeting – Vacay Social

For the July meeting of the KIND chapter, we will take a vacation from an organized program and just sit and knit and enjoy each other’s company.

It will also be a chance to ask for help with any knitting or crochet projects.

KIK Meeting – Afterthought Sock Heel

The afterthought heel is a term coined by the late Elizabeth Zimmerman in her “Knitting Without Tears” book. The heel is knitted after the leg and foot of your sock are completed. It’s a great technique to know for working heels in a contrasting color.

At our July meeting, Irene Piatek will teach us how to knit this heel.

* Details of your homework assignment will be forthcoming prior to our meeting.

Katy Lace Knitters – Lace Motifs

Due to the 4th of July holiday and travel plans, (yes, we can travel again) Katy Lace Knitters will meet on Tuesday, July 12th at The Toasted Yolk on the southwest corner of 99 and I10, starting at 10am.

We will be choosing a lace sampler project for this year’s “Education Series“.

Each month we will swatch one of the lace motifs at the meeting. You can do the whole scarf or not. The patterns are “Grandmother’s Flower Garden”, “Myrkwood” and “Sampler of Lace”.
All are free on Ravelry.

 

Please email me at joshanmom@aol.com if you can attend. The restaurant likes a head count.

SoCK Meeting – Needle Felting

Sock member, Ann Wohn, will present a program on “Fun Fiber Crafts” with a focus this month on needle felting. Come learn about supplies, cathartic techniques, and how to get started with a simple clump of wool or felt sheets!

 

While we hope to see you in-person for, there will also be a zoom option for those who are unable to attend live. Just send a note to knitatnightguildsock@gmail.com and we will forward you the dial-in if you are not on our chapter mailing list.

KNOW Meeting – Crewel Embroidery

KNOW’s June program will be an “Introduction to Crewel Embroidery on Hand Knits“.

We’ll be exploring the very hot trend of visible mending on garments and learning how to add embellishments to our hand knitted items. The visible mending movement has been driven by people interested in sustainability and who are concerned by the environmental impact of “fast fashion”.

If you’d like to try crewel embroidery you’re invited to “shop your closet” and bring a knitted garment, or maybe a swatch or a dishcloth to work on.

You’ll also need a blunt tapestry needle and some fingering or worsted weight scrap yarn, or embroidery floss, or needlepoint tapestry yarn (we’ll bring some too). If you’ve done visible mending before, please bring in any examples to share with other members and inspire us all.

 

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.

KIND Meeting – Sock Clinic

The June meeting of the KIND chapter will be a “Sock Clinic“.

Those who are proficient in sock knitting are going to help those who aren’t with tricks to help all be more successful sock knitters.

SoCK Meeting – Kool Aid Yarn Dyeing

Summer is here and it is HOT! What better way to cool off than with some Kool Aid? Instead of drinking it, SoCK members will head to the kitchen and do some yarn dyeing in the microwave with Kool Aid!

Dyeing with food dyes is an easy, fun, and safe way to become an indie dyer for a day. You can use any white or light-colored yarn that is animal fiber (wool, mohair, etc., no cottons or acrylics).

Materials to be provided for those in-person; otherwise, check your stash for leftovers or unloved hanks and give them a makeover with this fun technique! We will send out a full list of materials ahead of our meeting, so if you are not a SoCK chapter member, be sure to send an email to SoCK for the information.

 

We do hope to see you all in-person for this event; however, there will also be a zoom option for those who are unable to attend live. Just send a note to knitatnightguildsock@gmail.com and we will forward you the dial-in if you are not on our chapter mailing list.

KIK Meeting – My Favorite Shawl
