When: January 23, 2020 at 6pm
Where: IHOP
30200 US Hwy 19 N, Clearwater, FL 33761

Come join us for our first Guild meeting of the year. This meeting we will discuss knitting ergonomics!

We will also get the first pattern for our afgan/throw KAL. To get started on the first boarder, please see below.

Make an Afghan or Throw Blanket:
Every month you will get a new stitch at the meeting to add to your blanket.
Needles: You will need size 8 or 9 sized needles.
Yarn: Any worsted weight yarn, around 2000 yards, depending how big you want to make it.
Depending on the size you want, cast on 174 stitches for a throw or any multiple of 6 (ex 174 + 6 = 180). (I have a lot of yarn and I want it big so I cast on 198 stitches on size 9 needles.) You will receive the stitch of the month pattern in a picture plus written and charted directions, for those who want to learn how to read charts.

What to bring to the January meeting:
Choose your yarn. You can also make each section a different color or just solid if you want.
Cast on your stitches and knit 6 rows.

Come join us for our August Guild meeting. This meeting will be all about blocking! Robin sent out an email with info about this weeks meeting demo; it includes 2 videos to watch to be prepared for the meeting. She sent it out to all members who have an email on file, so if you didn’t receive her email, please head over to Facebook and PM her so she can send it to you, too!

We can’t wait to see you there!!!

P.S. We’re still oooing & ahhing over each other’s socks. Our Sock KAL started on July 1st and goes to September 28th, so it’s not too late to join (or knit another pair!) ;o) We have 3 wonderful patterns to choose from: Trusty Toe Up, Owlie, & Tube Socks. We’ll also have KAL prizes for guild members, so be sure to have your dues paid if you want to be eligible to win! (The KAL is open to everyone, so you can still join the fun even if you’re not a member.)
