At our April meeting we all got a lesson mosaic knitting. Rosie P brought in her copy of Barbara Walker’s book on mosaic knitting along with printed charts and instructions. After a short discussion, guild members got out their yarn and needles to try it out. By the time our meeting was over, a few people had swatches that were pretty far along. We hope to see some finished projects at Show & Share over the next few months. See the current newsletter for more information on mosaic knitting resources and patterns. Current newsletters are available to WCKG members only. Not a member? Join today!
We also discussed charity knitting and topics for future meetings.
Sam will be able to teach her popular dyeing class at the Welles Park Clubhouse, so stay tuned for more information as we decide on the right month for a class
Please join us for our upcoming meeting on March 12. Our guest speaker will be Amalia Malos from Evanston Stitchworks.
We Need Your Help in Planning the Future of the Guild
We have a serious shortage of board members. We need both a President and Monthly Meeting Coordinator. Last year, Julie S, as WCKG President, assumed both roles.
Without these positions being filled, we will need to break these responsibilities down or change the meeting structure. We have two options:
We need your feedback! We also need your commitment to the future of the guild. The March meeting will allow everyone a chance to weigh in on how you want the guild to proceed.
At our May 8th, 2018 meeting, we’ll be learning one-color brioche, and at our June 12th, 2018 meeting, we’ll be learning two-color brioche.
We’ll have easy knit-a-long scarf projects for each of these techniques, and KAL knit nights at the library as a follow-up to our lessons and to support each other on this adventure.
Grab a ball of worsted, your size 7 or 8 dpns or circs, and join the fun May 8, 2018 and June 12, 2018.
