Double Your Fun with Double Knitting
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.
Members from other chapters wishing to attend our meeting are welcome to do so. Please email KNOW prior to April 24th to be sure to receive 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.
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 .
- 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.
