Next Meeting -
Wednesday, June 1, 2016
Can it be so close to June already? Yes! Yes, it can, and yes, it is. And you might want a little bit of time to get ready since our June meeting - on June 1 - will involve a bit of homework.
The fabulous Debra Fox will teach us new skills - two different cast on techniques, and two different bind offs. I’m pretty sure that I’m not alone in doing the same cast on and bind off on every project - and for some projects, that’s OK. But isn’t it better to have a choice? “If some is good - more must be better” is true about more than chocolate and ice cream!
For the Cast On part, you will need to bring yarn and needles, worsted will work well, for each one - there will be two different cast ons. But since it is a cast ON class, you don’t need to have stitches on the needles. We’ll do that at the meeting.
For the Bind Off part, please make two swatches of a couple of inches, with 40 stitches on the needles. You’ll need two of them so that you can learn two different bind offs. Don’t bind off your swatches - we’ll do that in class. (Sorry - you know I can’t resist the chance to be a smarty pants!)
See you - and your needles, yarn, and swatches - on Wednesday, June 1!
