January Meeting

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We are working hard to find fun and exciting ways to keep everyone involved and engaged in our/your guild.

We are excited to kick off the new year with the Clapotis KAL(Knit along). Clapotis is a versatile “scarf”. You can choose if you want a scarf, shawl, or stole. You can use any yarn weight or needle size you desire. Yarns to avoid for this pattern are single spun or “sticky” yarns.

Chauntel will be giving us a demonstration on weaving in ends on lace projects. We ask that you either bring a finished lace project with ends to weave in, or a gauge swatch with ends so that you can participate. Here is a quick pattern to knit a swatch:

Please leave a 10 inch tail for weaving in. Items needed for this demonstration are the gauge swatch and a sharp darning needle. NO bent tip needles.

Please don’t forget to bring your hats for the homeless!!
