February Meeting

Hello Guild,

 Our January 26th meeting was a great start to the New Year. There were some return members and some new members. Please help me in welcoming Carla and Patti. We also had an array of knitting accessories and knitting related items that were shown for the show and tell.

 The next meeting is February 23rd and Joyce will be teaching us how to knit Christmas Stockings in a 2 part class that will continue for the March 22nd meeting as well. The Christmas Stocking classes will contain a plethora of information like using charts, Fair Isle and multi-color knitting just to name a few. So here is what you will need to do before the meeting and bring to the February meeting.

 To Do:

1.      Decide what weight of WOOL yarn you want to use. Sport, DK or Worsted.

2.      Pick out the pattern or patterns that you want.

a.      You can pick one large pattern or several shorter row patterns that are only 15 rows tall for example.

b.      Your stocking can have designs on one or both sides.

c.      Your color choices are vast.

Here are suggestions for places to find patterns. Remember you do not have to do an exact replica of an existing stocking. You can take a piece from this one and the colors from that one and so on.


2. – this website has a Chartmaker feature with a log of other people published charts and the capability to design and save your own charts.

3. type “charts in patterns” in the search field on the site and it will give you a list.

4.      Pattern books, dictionaries or collections.


To Bring:

1.      Yarn

2.      Patterns

3.      Bobbins

4.      Stitch markers

5.      Needles for the weight yarn that you have chosen


We look forward to seeing you there and if you have any questions please let us know in our Ravelry forum page by clicking here.

New Year.....New Knitting

Happy New Year!
Our next meeting is coming up this Tuesday the 26th of January. The program for the meeting is Show and Tell and Misbehaving Projects.
The homework for this meeting is to round up your favorite projects and bring them to show off. If you have a project or two that you need help with bring them as well, someone else in the guild may be able to give you the help you need.
Also remember that this is the first meeting of the new year and your membership can be renewed. Yearly dues is $20 or $5 for this month's meeting if you do not want to join for the year. All are welcome, bring your neighbor and/or a friend.
We will also plan classes for the coming year. Next month Joyce will get us started on a color work Christmas Stocking. Start thinking of what you want to learn or what you want to teach!

We will be meeting on the 26th at 6:00 at St. Lukes Lutheran Church in downtown Summerville on the corner of Central and W 2nd S St one block past The Village Knittery.

See you there!

Happy Knitting,

February Guild Meeting

February's guild meeting is 2 weeks away on Tuesday the 24th.

February's class will be Double Knitting taught by Victoria Williams. We will be knitting a small 2 sided sheep swatch, like the one pictured here.


There is homework for this class. You need to watch this Youtube video on how to do a Double Knitting Cast On.

- 2 different colors of worsted weight yarn. The more drastic the color difference the better.
- Size 8US needles if you knit tight and size 7US if you knit loose. Any configuration of needles will do.
- Stitch marker
