Auto Draft

At the March meeting we looked at different stitch techniques by the designer Bill King.
 We chose to look at single bed work only. All involved hand manipulation of stitches and a discussion followed of where these patterns could be used. Various difficulties were discussed as to yarn and tension required for moving several stitches at once.

It was a very interesting evening as most people had read his articles in Machine Knitting Monthly magazine and could see them demonstrated by members of the club.

There were several items in the show and tell section,  our chairman Gill had created a cushion cover using the plating technique that was covered in the last meeting.  There was a hand knitted blue childs jumper and a Batwing sweater using a Bill King design.

Programme During Covid-19 Pandemic

The club is meeting regularly - online - we have monthly Zoom coffee mornings on the second Wednesday of the month at 10:30 where we do a "show and tell" session and keep up to date with our members.

Due to the age profile of the membership there is not much likelihood of us having any face to face meetings in the foreseeable future. But we are considering having more content in our online meetings.

If you have not joined in so far it is very straightforward, Margaret sends out an email with a link and you need to click on it. It may ask you for the password which is in the email. You will need a device with a working camera if you are going to show anything you've made. A laptop computer, tablet computer or iPad are best but even a smartphone is possible.
