October 20 - Add Knitted Edging to Shawl by Sue McKinnell.

This meeting is a follow-up to the April meeting where Sue introduced a pattern for making a triangular lace shawl.  The October meeting will cover the technique of adding a perpendicular edging to a shawl.  

For anyone who doesn't have a copy of the original pattern, it is available on the LACE website on the free patterns page.

Also available on that page are the files for making the lace scarf Sue presented last year if someone wants to try lace and isn't ready for a shawl yet. Sue is happy to help people with either. 

For anyone who is knitting the shawl but isn't yet ready to add an edge and wants to learn how to add a perpendicular edging, Sue suggests knitting a small version - the first 10 rows, for example - of the shawl on alternate yarn and needles so they can try the technique on it.  I'll be bringing such a sample using worsted weight yarn and size US 6 needles.

November 17 - Needle Tatting project with Brenda Glenn. Materials to be announced at a later date.

NOTE:  Classes have been planned Jauary - April for 2019.  If you have a class you want to teach, contact Marianne.
