Knitting Guild of Santa Cruz
It’s been a challenging holiday season, with too many cold and flu victims. We are at last on track to present the January meeting to you.
Were you aware that people from other areas of the world knit in different ways? Yet, they all produce knitted fabric similar to what you or I produce using English (“throwing”) or Continental (“picking”).
This month, member Maria Burnett will show us how she knits Portuguese style. Maria will also give us a little information on why she knits that way and on knitting in Portugal. We can then follow her instructions to practice Portuguese knitting in the group.
For this program, there is homework. If you want to participate, please bring a swatch of 20 stitches using your favorite yarn on an appropriate needle. Knit 4 rows in garter, then 4 rows in stockinette, leaving the yarn to start with a knit (WS) row.
Please join us for the January 2018 meeting.
