It’s time! We haven’t taken much time to show off our creations! So, this month you are invited to bring your top (or bottom, de-pending on your sense of humor) THREE knit items to show off. You might want comments to help you decide about your fair posting or you might just want to show off what you wore to your own or someone else’s wedding. It’s up to you — just no more than 3 pieces, please!
We will also brain storm about future meetings so…. What would you like to :
Please bring with you a circular needle in a size that you would use to knit the worsted weight yarn, that you will also bring with you. This will be so that you can try to do what is variously called, Lever Knitting or Catholic Knitting or Irish Knitting. It will be best if the yarn is NOT grabby and that your needle IS slick. If you have done this method of knitting before you might be used to using long, straight needles — and indeed you may want to try it that way. I find that the curve of the circular needle helps with the “bounce” needed to drive the needle to the yarn. We will just be knitting a trial swatch, so don’t bring “important” yarn with you — a leftover ball will be good enough.
We will also have order forms for our Guild branded blouses and polo shirts, our new tape measures and iron on decals (appropriate for use on any WHITE fabric), at the meeting. Payment may be made by check (payment must be made when you order your shirt — range is $25-$35 depending on style and size xs-5XL)
