KNOW Meeting – Celebration of Charity Knitting

KNOW’s May program will be a “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.

 

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 – 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.

KNIT Meeting – Yarn Substitutions

Starting a new project and want to substitute yarn from your stash rather than buying more yarn or the pattern yarn is no longer available? Have you substituted a yarn and run out of yarn before the project was finished? 

April’s program will address grist – the weight/yard comparisons (density of yarn) – a consideration that is important to ensure you have enough substitute yarn for your project. Members are encouraged to contribute other considerations they have found to be important when making a yarn substitution.

Also, be sure to bring your recently completed projects for Show & Share!
