September 2022 Meeting & News

When: Thursday, September 22, 2022 at 6pm
Where: Largo Community Center
400 Alt Keene Rd, Largo, FL 33771

If you’re making the crocheted Granny Square Dishcloth with us, but can’t make it to meeting, make sure to email a picture to BayAreaKG@gmail.com to be included in the monthly drawing!

Our Program this month will be a toe-up seamless sock construction. If you want to start a pair of socks, bring dpns in size 1 or 2 and fingering weight yarn. If you just want to learn the technique, bring dpns in a larger size (7 or 8) and worsted weight yarn. Cassie will have some dpn sets for you to borrow for the class. Please bring yarn.

I will have the last dishcloth in this year’s series. Remember, the people who finish all 10 dishcloths will be entered into a separate raffle that will be drawn at the Holiday Party in Dec. You do not have to be present to win.

Next Yarn Swap is September 29th at Queen’s Pizza and next Knit in the Park will be October 8th.

Don’t forget to bring your FO projects, we’d love to see what you’ve made!

August 2022 Meeting & News

Where: Largo Community Center

If you’re making the Lace Leaf Dishcloth with us, but can’t make it to meeting, make sure to email a picture to BayAreaKG@gmail.com to be included in the monthly drawing!

Our activity this month will be pub-style TRIVIA. Bring your handknit thinking caps and think up team names. You will be in groups of 4-5 (depending on attendance) and each team will need a name.

I did announce a spoiler that the September dishcloth will be CROCHET. I know that scares some people but with tutorials on the web and fibers friends across Tampa Bay, I’m sure it will be a success. Learn how to chain and do a double crochet. Only hints I’m giving out right now.

Our program next month (Sep) will be a toe-up sock cast-on with Cassie Tempone. I will send out an email to the guild members on what you need to bring to knit-along.

Don’t forget to bring your FO projects, we’d love to see what you’ve made!
