Fancy Lace Edgings – Presented by member Stella Sexmith
Who has not wanted to add an interesting ribbed lace edge to a simple accessory so that you can keep your knitting interesting and mind engaged, or to dress up the piece a little? But, just how would you approach it? And where do you find patterns for those edges?
At the Knitting Guild this month member Stella Sexmith will present a few different lace edges that you can make and show you how to convert them from a flat sample to an in-the-round sample. Using the concepts presented, you will be able to add lace edgings to simple hats, cowls, socks, scarves or even sleeves. (This program was a suggestion of member Dorothy Mayeda.)
Although there is no “homework”, if you would like to participate in a short knitting practice in lace edging, please bring single colored or tonal yarn with appropriate needles. Worsted yarn and needles size 7 or 8 would be good.
We hope to see you at a meeting this month! Should you have an idea for a future program, please contact Stella Sexmith.
