January 5, 2016: Round Robin!!!

Mother Nature has been pretty kind to us so far this winter. If she continues to behave, please join us January 5th for our next Round Robin!! We will have four new skills to learn or improve on. Our fearless leader Elizabeth McDonough will be teaching Brioche, Cyd Bogner will teach the different methods for knitting with beads, Geanie Helfrich will be teaching applied Icord, and Sheila Sagerer will teach picot edgings and bindoffs. Here’s your material list and homework:
