We also have a weekly Get-Together group named "The Knit-Abouts." They meet weekly on Wednesdays from 7-9 pm. The location is currently the Harvard's Dunkin Donuts. This group meets all year (except weeks when the Guild Meeting is occurring).

Rachel Henry—Designer, Knitter and Mom

Rachel Henry, the designer of the Evolution Shawl, will be joining us to talk about that piece, and shawls, and designing in general.

Rachel lives near Boston, MA, with her husband, three young boys, and two Border Collies. She loves New England’s temperamental weather, making soft, warm, hand-knit items useful (nearly) year-round. She finds time for knitting and designing by squeezing it in wherever it will fit:

My philosophy about knitting: it should be fun for the knitter, and create beautiful, useful finished pieces. I love to experiment with new shapes and stitches, bending the knitting to my purpose.

Postponed —Blocking with Judith Durant

Due to Snow we have postponed this—future date is in the works

 

The exciting news is whoever makes and brings a scarf to the meeting, will have an opportunity to have her Scarf blocked by Judith.

 

That night there will be a drawing to have your scarf blocked by Judith during the meeting. So make a scarf with points and cross your fingers .

 

Any questions prior to the February meeting, please let us know.

Knit-a-long—Evolution Shawl by Rachel Henry

We will be starting a guild knit-a-long.  At last month’s meeting the group decided on the Evolution Shawl.  So bring pattern, yarn and needles to the meeting so we can get started.  Download the pattern at http://thefiberfactor.com/?page_id=1127
