Join us at 10 am to learn 10 ways to improve your knitting. Arenda Hollady will be teaching all day. After the 10 am meeting she will be teaching a workshop on Seams. There is homework to be completed before you come to class. If you haven’t signed up yet you will have to call Lynn McCown to see if there is room and if you will have enough time to do the homework. The workshop starts at 1 pm and goes until 4 pm. At 7 pm Arenda will teach 10 ways to improve your knitting again.

Our Vendors will be:
Tippecanoe Weaver & Fibers Too- Tipp City, Ohio
The Yarn Shop-Columbus, Ohio

We won’t be having the 7 PM meeting tonight. Lynn McCown taught us how to use steeks in our knitting at the 10 AM meeting. She gave use a handout called, Steek This Coffee Cozy. She had made 2 of them. She cut them after she showed us how to keep the edges from unraveling. She reminded us that we are making fabric. You can cut and sew fabric. In olden days knitting was always done in the round on double pointed needles. Knitting in pieces is a fairly new concept. It is best to Steek wool. Cotton or rayon just won’t work.

Happy knitting,

PS. Someone at the morning meeting left a woven scarf behind.

Eek! I have to Steek!

Taking scissors to knitting can be scary. Learn how to confidently prepare your knitting to be cut to produce wonderful garments. Steeking is a wonderful tool for color knitting in the round, or maybe just helping that garment to fit better.
10 am and 7 pm at St. Mary’s Center

Vendors: Julie’s Knit-Knacks Beavercreek, OH

Julie will have a Studio LK150 knitting machine there for anyone to play with. For those who already have a machine and have questions, bring it to the meeting, and hopefully Julie will be able to help you.

DKG Meeting is this coming Monday, January 19th 2015.
Don’t forget to bring something to knit on and your UFO.

Our topic is:
When Knitting Attacks!
by Christine Hall

What do we do when the knitting goes wrong? Maybe we don’t like the yarn, the pattern is not doing what we’d hoped, we’re tired of it, or we’re just plain stuck. If you want the project to go away maybe someone else will love it! Bring in your UFO’s and we’ll see what can be done or maybe find it a new home!
10 am and 7 pm at St. Mary’s Center

Root Down Acres Springfield, OH
Fiberworks Beavercreek, OH

Don’t forget to bring your UFO.

Are you knitting any Holiday gifts this year?

Do to the bad weather and the small turn out (12 women) at the 10 am meeting we will not be having the 7 pm Dayton Knitting Guild meeting.

Check your local news station tomorrow before you come to the Dayton knitting guild meeting. If the Dayton schools are closed, we will not be having a meeting. The presenter, that was coming from Cinncinnati, will not be able to come tomorrow. There is already freezing rain in Cinncinnati. We will still have a meeting if the Dayton schools are open.

Bring the knitting project you are working on. We’d love to see it. Are you planning on knitting any Holiday gifts this year?
