FEBRUARY GUILD MEETINGS
ARE CANCELLED

Morning &Evening

We will be moving our Fixing, Friends & Frogging to the March meetings:

  • bring any project that you have a mistake in, don’t know where you are in the pattern, or just need minor help with
  • bring a project, or many, to frog! We’ll have ball winders and swifts to help get your yarn back to a knittable state
  • bring a friend, or many, to introduce them to the Guild. You and your friend will be entered into a drawing for a door prize, if your friend signs up for membership then you both receive a little gift

Don’t forget to work on charity knits!!
I think I will pull out my knitting machine and get some lap blankets done…what will you all work on while home due to the lovely winter weather??

Happy Knitting!!

Helix Knitting: Perfect for leftover charity yarn

Hey y’all! I know we’re continuing our month of charity knitting, but I wanted to think about how we can keep some of that momentum going through the rest of the year. If you’ve found that you have little bits of yarn leftover from all your projects but don’t want to just toss them, this is an awesome way to use it all up for more projects that can be donated throughout the rest of the year.

Helix knitting is a super colorful way to incorporate lots of different yarns in a cohesive way that’s perfect for kid’s projects, which means it’ll be an even faster knit!

I’ve got some helpful resources linked that show how it works, as well as the pattern for the hats featured in the photo:
