At this month’s Guild meetings, we will have a chance to branch out to (or
brush up on) crochet skills to enhance our knitting:
Crochet for Knitters
For all the wonderful things you can do with knitting, sometimes it is just
faster and easier to use a little crochet to finish your project. Join Mary
Rhodes as she leads us in exploring crab stitch, light crab stitch, some
basic and a few fancy edges (shells and picots), adding buttonholes or
loops, and making your edge match the drape/gauge of your fabric.
Bring a swatch of knitting to play with some edges and some contrasting
yarn – worsted or DK weight are good, and a size G-I hook. Mary will have
some hooks and yarn, too, if you don’t have your own.
Mary is a crochet expert and has taught crochet at local yarn stores.
The NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, August 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, August 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.
Hope you can make it,
