Knitting Workshops presented by Knitters AnonymousName: Knitting Workshops presented by Knitters AnonymousDate: February 18, 2020Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM ESTEvent Description:Knitters Anonymous seeks to provide fellowship and support for the art of hand knitting (crocheters are welcome to attend). Please bring your own yarn and needles. Four sessions will be offered on the Tuesdays of February in the United Church Parlor from 2 – 4 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. Participants will be asked to bring a donation for Project Starburst to each session – non-perishable food or handmade hats, mittens or scarves for the pantry. If the weekly topic doesn’t interest you, come anyway and knit (or crochet) with us.
February 4: Show and Tell Bring a project, a unique stitch or a useful technique to share. Knitters and crocheters love to see what others are creating and how they are doing it. Or bring an easy FREE pattern to share and/or suggest a cause to knit or crochet for.
February 11: Let’s Talk About Short Rows Demystify the short row conundrum. We’ll explore several methods of achieving the same end: short row shaping of sweaters and socks, including the wrap + turn and German short rows.
February 18: Colorful Knitting the Fair Isle Way Don’t say you can’t until you try, or at least watch several knitters demonstrate the beautiful and time-honored technique of Fair Isle (knitting with two or more colors at the same time). It could become your next obsession.
February 25: Beading – Add Some Bling to Your Knitting With help from Vicki Vogel, we will learn the ins and outs of adding those tiny little beads into our knitting.
