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.

Agenda for January’s meeting:
- Start KAL
- Show and Share
- “Weaving in ends on lace project”
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:
Feather and Fan:
18 St repeat, work for 4”
Cast on 22
Knit 3 rows
Row 4 (RS) – k2, k2tog x3, (k1, yo) 6x, k2tog x3, k2

Repeat rows 4-7 until desired swatch length
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!!
