September 2019 Program: Hats in a New Direction

Do you knit hats? Do you get tired of knitting them around and around and around? Did you ever wonder if there is another fun way to knit hats and have them be stunning and different? Yes, there is!

We will again watch a Fruity Knitting podcast interview and this time it will be Wooly Wormhead. Wooly knits only hats and has been a leader in developing new ways of knitting hats. She will talk about her process for design, head and face shapes, finding a hat shape that looks good on you, hat knitting techniques and types of yarn to use.

In addition, we will be able to examine Wooly’s types of hats up close. This is a program that is very appropriate to lead us into holiday knitting and to determine if the knitting style appeals to you.

Note: We will also have the book exchange at this meeting. Please bring no more than 10 books to sell, proceeds to the Knitting Guild.

Prices – Paperbacks: $.50, Hardcover – $1.00, Magazines and patterns – $.50,

Knitting Books – as marked

Leftovers will be donated to the Capitola Library store in the Mall.
