August 2022 Meeting & News

When: Thursday, August 25, 2022 at 6pm
Where: Largo Community Center
400 Alt Keene Rd, Largo, FL 33771

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!

Guild Meeting

Where: Largo Community Center

If you’re making the Aster Flower 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!

I am hearing the Aster Flower is a bit hard to understand, even with the youtube video. If you can finish it by the meeting (there will be no judging on size or technique), you will be entered into the monthly drawing. I will help anyone who needs it at the end of the meeting. If you need more time due to the level of difficulty, I will allow you to get help from me or another member and have it ready for May. You will still be eligible for the end of year drawing, but no longer the monthly drawing.

We will be sharing our Felted Bowls or Felted Coasters. Be sure to bring your FOs to the meeting. Also, if you have felted anything in the past, bring those for show and tell, as well.

Don’t forget to bring your other FO projects, as well, so we may delight in your accomplishments!
