October Update!

Our October program will be Swatching and Blocking presented by Jennifer Donze. This will be a hands on meeting for those who wish to participate. If you prefer to sit and knit, you are most welcome to listen, ask questions or follow along with your neighbor’s swatch. For those who would like to participate, please work a 4 inch x 4 inch swatch in plain stockinette ( no borders or edge stitches). It will be easiest to see your work if you use a plain, un-textured yarn, worsted weight or larger in a light color. Please block this swatch and bring it along with your ball band ( if you have it) to the meeting on Tuesday, October 8, 2013. You will also need to bring a hard ruler, a double pointed needle, a calculator, a tapestry needle and a 12-inch piece of contrasting color yarn. November 2013 we will have designer and educator Marry Jo Harris, presenting the history and how-to's of Portugese knitting. December is our Holiday Party with Show and Tell. On Friday, October 11 we will be knitting and promoting our Guild from 9:30 to 4:00 at the Cudahy Library for I Love Yarn Day! A sign up sheet will be available at our October Meeting. Please plan on joining us for any part of the day.
