KNOW Zoom Meeting – Yarn dyeing

Knitter’s Night Out West meets from 7:00 pm – 8:30pm on the last Monday of each month (EXCEPT IN MAY and December). While we normally meet at Spring Creek Barbeque, 21000 Katy Freeway, I-10 at Westgreen Blvd in Katy, currently we are holding Zoom meetings.
Chapter members, please watch your email for a poll regarding when we should resume in-person meetings. May 24th is a Zoom meeting so watch for your invitation around May 20.
Members from other chapters wishing to attend our meeting are always welcome to do so. Please email KNOW prior to May 21st to be sure to receive a Zoom invitation.
KNOW 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.) 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 KNOW chapter member be sure to send an email to KNOW for the information and Zoom invite as soon as possible.

KIK Zoom Meeting – Double knitting

Double Your Fun with Double Knitting

You’ve heard of double vision, but have you heard of double knitting?  Join KIK at our May 15 meeting where Connie Blakley will introduce you to this technique. Double knitting is usually knit with two colors, incorporates a design, and produces a fabric that looks the same on the front and back. It is especially striking when knit with gradient yarn in two complementary colorways. If you want to knit along, bring two colors of yarn and appropriately sized, straight needles. You will also need a crochet hook for the cast on.
Please send an email to KIK President (knitatnightguildkik@gmail.com) if you wish to attend.

CHIX Zoom Meeting – Duplicate knitting

Duplicate stitch is a simple way to add color to your knitting project. We will work this on any plain smooth stockinette base. You will need 2 smooth worsted contrast yarns and needles to match. Work a 4×4 stockinette swatch with base color.
Bring samples of duplicate projects to share.
Looking forward to working with you. Email knitatnightguildchix@gmail.com for access.

KNIT Zoom Meeting – Scrappy Ray shawl

We are so excited to have engaged Designer Thamo Hurly to teach her Scrappy Ray Shawl. We have limited availability to other chapter members to join our chapter. The fee for joining (if you don’t belong to KNIT) is $25 (includes pattern). Have you ever wondered how to use up all those scraps of yarn that you keep in your stash? This is the perfect class to help solve that problem.  Thamo will teach us how to get the most of our leftovers or minis to produce a shawl that you will be proud to wear or gift. We have availability for 6 more knitters. This is going to be a GREAT KNIT meeting.
How to join: email Paula at pdctexas@gmail.com to determine if space is available space and how to pay.

KNOW Meeting – I Loved the Hank, Now What?

While we normally meet at Spring Creek Barbeque, 21000 Katy Freeway, I-10 at Westgreen Blvd in Katy currently we are holding Zoom meetings. Chapter members, please watch your email for a Zoom invitation.

The April Program will be a Power Point presentation entitled “I Loved the Hank, Now What?” presented by Amy Rodgers.  There will be a short introduction to variegated yarns and what may be some unintended consequences when knit up.  Photos and written descriptions of stitch patterns that highlight the yarn as itself will be shown. Specifically, this will include  slip stitches with long floats, drop stitch patterns, elongated stitches and multi row lattice floats.

KIND meeting – How to knit a sweater

This month and the following months we will work on Cheryl Brunette’s “How to make a sweater” class.  The website for the class is https://howtoknitasweater.com .

The class has 15 videos; some of these we will watch in class, others you will need to watch at home.  For the April class, the homework is below.  It looks like a lot but it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes.
  • Go to the link above and click on the “Sign me up!” button.  Enter your name and email address then click “Get started here”.
  • Download the handouts
  • The class starts on the page titled “Part 1: Welcome to the Workshop.”  The attachment in this email is the same as the “download the pattern” link so you won’t need to do that.
  • Watch video “Part 1: Welcome to the Workshop” and the video “Making and measuring a gauge swatch”.
  • Get the yarn and needles you want to use for the sweater – this is a test knit in a size to fit a small child so you won’t need a lot of yarn.

KNIT Meeting – Frogging

KNIT is starting our spring cleaning by a FROG session. Do you frog or tink? Come share tips and learn from others about starting fresh and starting over.
If you want to visit our chapter for this meeting, please request the link at least 72 hours in advance by sending an email to the KNIT President (knitatnightguildknit@gmail.com).
