The Wooly Wonders Fiber Arts Guild meetings for March will be on SATURDAY, March 29th at 10:00 am.
We will be meeting at the NEVERENDING STORIES BOOK SHOP which is located in downtown Franklin at 1252 Liberty Street (the same door as the Cupcakery had). We will be meeting downstairs where there are tables and chairs. You are welcome to bring your own beverages to the meeting.
For the program this month Kathy Zinz will give a refresher course on making the Helix Scarf at the request of some of our new members. We had a class in making this scarf at our November/December 2012 meeting. Please bring your completed (or in progress) scarf to this meeting.
This is a very popular scarf pattern which was offered for free on the Knitting Daily website.:
To make the scarf you will need 450 yds of sock weight yarn and size 5 or 6 needles (either straight or circular will work). The gauge isn’t very critical but you want the fabric to have “drape” so if you knit extra tightly, you may even need to use size 7 needles.
The pattern is very easy and is a good way to learn how to do short-row knitting with “wrap and turns”. If you just want to learn this technique but not make the complete scarf, then bring scrap yarn in sock/fingering weight and your needles.
Catherine has offered to order doughnuts if you are interested but you must contact her no later than Thursday (3/27). firstname.lastname@example.org
Check your email for an attachment with the mailing list. Please look it over and inform us of any changes and updates.
Don’t forget to bring your show and tell items!
We hope to see you at the March meeting on SATURDAY, March 29th!
