Our own Edith Murphy will be teaching us how to knit intarsia. We will be making an apple dishcloth, or whatever square you would like (afghan, hot pad…), measuring about 7 x 7 inches, at 4.5 stitches per inch.
Supplies: 2 contrasting colors of any type of worsted weight yarn, either in center pull balls, or wound into two balls for each color; one two yard scrap of a third color (for the apple stem) and the appropriate sized needles that you prefer for knitting back and forth.
Homework: CO 33 sts. Knit 3 garter ridges (5 or 6 rows) ending with a wrong side row. Row 1 (RS): Knit across; Row 2: k3, p27, k3. Rep. rows 1 and 2 one more time.
As always, we look forward to seeing your completed items or interesting work in progress for “show and tell”.
Membership is $25 a year. Guests are welcome to attend the program for a $10 charge.
LOOK at all the clever needle-felted objects that we created. After a short overview of needle felting, Lynn demonstrated how to make a felt heart. With a bit of practice (and a little blood-letting…) many nearly-heart-shaped objects began to appear. Some found the basket rather uninspiring, and opted to go free form:
Everybody did seem to have a good time, and the injuries were minor, and few.
Thanks to Lynn for leading the class and John for helping out.
