June meetings are coming right up! Laurie Stanley has been exploring stitches in the brioche family, a focus of renewed interest in the knitting world following the recent publication of KNIT ONE BELOW, by Elise Duvekot. We’ll have chance to learn about these interesting stitches this month, at both meetings. Laurie says: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Prime rib, peak and valley, double shaker, k1b, fisherman’s rib…could it be that they’re all in the family, the brioche rib stitch family? Together let’s swatch two easy and attractive variations starting with the k1b. You will need to bring:
1) yarns from your stash in two to four different colors (a main color A and a contrast color B) that you like together. Texture and size do not have to match. Variegated yarns work well for this if you have some but are not required. You will want to decide which is your A color and which is your B color for each of the two swatches we will make. Use the same or different yarn pairings for each.
2) two pairs of circular needles* in sizes to suit your yarns
* circulars required
This month’s NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, June 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room of the Community Church at 411 Roxas Street in Santa Cruz.
The DAY MEETING will be on Thursday, June 18, from 10 a.m. to noon at Holy Cross Church in Santa Cruz, in the meeting room by the gym, toward the back of the complex.
