Short rows don’t have to be a source of puzzlement or anxiety!
At both February Guild meetings, Kathy Haber will be presenting a program on Understanding Short Rows.
You may have heard knitters talk about “short rows” and thought this sounded mysterious and difficult. But if you’ve ever turned the heel
in a sock, you’ve already done them! This technique is extremely useful for making darts and combining yarns and stitches that don’t
have the same row gauge. A really smooth shoulder seam can be made using this technique.
This month I will bring examples demonstrating their application and you will have an opportunity to do a few. So bring a ball of worsted
weight yarn and needles to match.
If you want to get a head start:
Cast on 20 stitches. Work in stockinette stitch for 10 rows; leave stitches
This month’s NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, February 12, from
6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church,
2500 Soquel Ave.
The DAY MEETING will be on Thursday, February 21, 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.
