Basic Knitting for Crocheters: October 9 Meeting Preview

Our next meeting will be held Saturday, October 9 from 2:30 to 4:30 at Borealis Yarns, 1340 Thomas Avenue in St. Paul MN in the main conference room. We have a fun, full agenda and hope you can join us!
  • Maxine will teach some basic knitting skills from a crocheter's perspective. The list is flexible but topics so far are: Cast-on methods, knit and purl, making knit edges on crocheted items, choosing needle size, choosing knitting style (Continental vs. American picking vs. throwing). If you're interested in participating please bring the following items:
    • Worsted weight yarn
    • Pair of knitting needles (straight or circular), size 7 or 8
    • Optional (but really fun!). Crocheted squares or rectangles in the same yarn, to practice knit edges
  • Update on our community project - remember, our goal is 20 bags by the October meeting
  • Finalize plans for our the first "5th Saturday" field trip (Saturday, October 30, the fifth Saturday in October)
  • Share out latest projects
