Let’s face it, sweater knitting isn’t for everyone, and big knitting projects take a long time. Everyone needs a project that’s quick, fun to make, an interesting challenge, or just plain practical. Or maybe you’re looking for a quick-knit for a gift. That’s where “Wearable Accessories” come in. Shawls, scarves, cowls, gloves, hats…an endless variety of possible projects.
We all have good examples of projects that fit this category. Pick one of your favorites and bring it to either (or both!) of the April meetings. Be prepared to tell us about it: What made this a fun project? Why recommend it to others? What yarn did you use? Is the pattern easily available?
We’ll keep a list of the projects everyone brings, and the result will be a directory of patterns that will be shared with everyone via email, listserv, and website.
The NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, April 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, April 21, from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 at Vintage Faith Church (aka The Abbey), the large brick church at the corner of Mission and Highland.
From Highway 1 North, Highland is the first right after the light at the top of the hill where Highway 1 merges into Mission Street. Parking lot is the first right turn off Highland.
From Highway 1 (Mission Street) South, turn left at the light on Walnut to Escalona. Turn right on Escalona to its end at Highland. Parking lot is across Highland. Enter through the Office; our meeting is straight ahead in The Fireside Room.
