KNOW Meeting – Sock KAL

Knitters Night Out West (KNOW) – Monday, September 25, 6:30pm – 8:30pm

WHEN: Last Monday of the month (Except May and December), 6:30-8:30pm

WHERE: Spring Creek Barbeque, 21000 Katy Freeway, I-10 at Westgreen Blvd, Katy, TX

The KNOW chapter will be starting a sock KAL. Bring your sock measurements from the August program, yarn of your choice (fingering, sock, DK, or sport weight recommended) and appropriate-sized needles for that yarn.

We will be discussing top-down vs toe-up socks, using DPNs vs Magic Loop vs short circs and we will be doing a wee bit of math. We will cast-on our socks and start knitting!

Many members come early and get their BBQ fix for dinner. See y’all on Mon Sept 25th, at 6:30pm at Spring Creek BBQ on I-10 and Westgreen, in Katy!!

SoCK Meeting – Intro to Cables

Saturday Cypress Knitters (SoCK) – Saturday, September 9, 10:00am – 12:00pm


WHEN: 2nd Saturday of the month, 10am-12pm.

WHERE: Zoom and Weekley Community Center, 8440 Greenhouse Rd, Cypress, TX 77433


Introduction to Cables: Marla Morris will introduce us to cable knitting. This introduction to cables is designed for fairly new knitters who can knit and purl and are ready to increase their skills. She will present a variety of cable stitches, their uses, cable needles, and descriptions. We will look at a chart and a written pattern for the same sample, learn how cable stitches appear on the chart, how they are used in patterns, then how to make them—with and without a cable needle. A Powerpoint presentation and pattern are part of this class, originally designed for a knitting guild format of one hour.


The free pattern (on Ravelry) is Hugs & Kisses Wristers by Marla Morris


Homework: Using DK or Worsted weight yarn and the appropriate needle sizes, Cast on 27 stitches [3 x 3 rib for 5 rows]

KIND Meeting – 10 Stitch Technique

Hazel Kjos will guide us in learning the Ten Stitch Technique, an easy way to make square objects such as blankets.

For homework: take a favorite solid-colored yarn, cast on 10 stitches and knit in garter stitch for 20 rows (10 ridges.) Slip the first stitch of each row and knit all the way to the last stitch of each row.

At the meeting, Hazel will show the process of mitering to create sharp corners and continuing around the central piece to enlarge it, similar to a Log Cabin Barn Raising quilting pattern.
