October 3rd Meeting Topic:
The educational piece of our October 3rd meeting will feature Steve Lawrence known as SteveL on Ravelry. If you haven’t met Steve you are in for a treat.
He will be discussing best practices for Intarsia knitting as learned through The Scarf Project. He will touch on what distinguishes intarsia from other color work knitting, knitting techniques needed, yarn management, charts, lessons learned, and more. Steve has received permission from Lucy Neatby -LucyN to share a portion of her DVD “Intarsia Untangled” as part of the presentation. Steve says he will do his best to encourage each of us to try intarsia knitting or challenge ourselves by taking intarsia to the next level.

And on that very same day you will want to watch Dr. Oz! Take a look at this short blurb about the show that day: Men Who Knit on Dr. Oz
“Greetings fellow knitters. Just wanted to let you know that a couple of weeks ago the Dr. Oz show contacted me about MWK. They were working on a segment about MWK (in general) and asked for pics and info. I just got word today that the segment will air on Wednesday, October 3rd. Check your listings to see time. I can’t wait to see what they prepared from what I sent to them! We are making national TV.” (MWK is the Men Who Knit Ravelry Group)
