November 2014 Meeting

Sorry for the confusion, but note the day meeting’s new location.

The holidays are coming up fast and many of us will need to whip up a quick knit gift at the last minute. Do you know what you’re going to do? Do you have a favorite “go to” project that knits up really fast? If you do, bring a sample if you can and information about the project to the November meeting(s) of the Knitting Guild and we’ll share the ideas. Or if you have a favorite book of quick knit patterns, bring that to share, too.

Haven’t got a project to share and actually need to get started now on a quick gift? Have no fear…we’ll have copies of four patterns available for you to pick up and get started at the meeting. Here’s the list of
patterns and supplies you’ll need; pick one or more; we’ll have samples to show:

Balls Up – Knit Christmas Ornaments – Sock yarn in small quantities; Size 1 circs and dpns; 2.5″ polystyrene ball or stuffing

Easy Knitted Bangles – DK weight 15 yds. per bangle; Size 3 dpns or circs [NOTE: We’ll have some wonderful festive red ribbon yarn available free to make a bangle at the meeting. It is heavier weight yarn, so bring Size 8 dpns (if you don’t want to sew a seam)]

Versatile Hand Warmers – Chunky yarn, Size 10.5 dpns or circs

Washboard Coasters or Rugs – Worsted yarn blended with novelty yarns (great for scraps); Circ needles to match weight of yarn

You’ll leave the meeting with plenty of ideas and maybe even a finished project. Come and join in the fun!
