Mini Workshop

We have a few spots left for the “Where and How of Picking Up Stitches” workshop with Arenda Holladay, March 20th from 1pm-3pm. Learn not just how to pick up stitches, but where to pick up stitches and determine how many to pick up. We will learn how to pick up from horizontal, vertical and curved edges. If you want to attend please call Christine Hall at 937-430-0691 and she will send you the homework assignment, which you have to do before the class. The cost is $10 for DKG members, $25 for non-members.

 

10 am and 7 pm at
St. Mary Center

Vendors:
The Yarn Shop, Columbus, Oh
Silk Road Textiles, Cincinnati, OH

Hi Everybody,

Just a reminder to all you Bloggers. Tomorrow is the first day that you can send in your DKG retreat registration. You have until March 25th, but why wait? This is going to be a fantastic knitting retreat. Carol Anderson will be our teacher for the whole weekend (look her up on the internet). Everyone that has been with her says she is a joy to be around. There will be a lot of knitting going on. We will start out doing a pattern with the garter stitch. Then we will be making the cutest little lace sachet. Our final project will be done using a cable pattern. I can hardly wait. Some time after March 25th I will be sending out an acceptance letter to you. There will be a map to Bergamo, a schedule and any other instructions (very small amount of homework. Yea!)
I’ve never been more excited about a retreat before. We have invited all of the 19 vendors in your DKG directory to participate in the Yarn Market (remember it is open to the public). We will also have a table set up for our new DKG merchandise and for Carol Anderson’s patterns.
Yours Truly,
Heather Janney, Retreat Chairwoman

This just in… Julie and Maryann will be the vendors at tomorrow’s DKG meeting. Come join the fun. Kim will be doing a demonstration on her sock knitting machine.

I’m sorry that I will be missing it.

Circular Sock Machines

Kim Kulasa

Did you know that sock machines were popular 100 years ago as a knitting home industry? CSMs began to reappear on the scene in the 80s and have become so popular that they are again being manufactured. Come see – and try your hand at knitting socks on a CSM.

Did everyone get the brochure about our annual knitting retreat at Bergamo with Carol Anderson? If you did not get one let me know. I tried to put a picture of the brochure on this blog. I hate computers.

Thanks,
