November is election month! Come prepared to vote for a new Vice President. We have two candidates for this office—Rita Perrone and Kim Whelan. Be sure to get a ballot when you check in and return it by the end of the evening to make your vote count.
The November program is Make It and Take It: Knitting Tools
Enjoy demos and hands-on workstations to learn to make your own knitting tools. From stitchmarkers to sock blockers...you will come away from this meeting with some sample tools that you have made yourself and the knowledge to make others!
If you have plastic, lidded carryout containers--bring them along! We will be putting grommets in these containers to make yarn clamshells.
We will need a few jewelery pliers for people to use at the stitchmarker table. If you have some you're willing to let others use during the evening, please label them with your name and bring them. We will make sure they get back to you.
For a mini knitting project
Some yarn from your stash—less than half a ball
a set of 5 DPNs in a size appropriate for your yarn
2 pieces of scrap yarn
tapestry needle and
a stitchmarker (oh! You will have just made one of those!)
Looking forward to seeing you next Tuesday!
