NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2012 MEETING

November 22, 2012

Hello Everyone,

The Wooly Wonders Fiber Arts Guild meetings for November and December will be combined and we will meet on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1st at 10:00 am.

We will be meeting at the Pink Champagne Cupcakery which is located in downtown Franklin at 1252 Liberty Street. If you need directions, please call them at 814-437-0000 (that is not a typo – that really is their phone number!). We will be meeting in their back room where there are tables and chairs.

The program for December will be a lesson by Bridgett Davis on how to make the Helix Scarf. This is a very popular scarf pattern which was offered for free on the Knitting Daily website.

If you would like to make the scarf you will need 450 yds of sock weight yarn—the same amount as a pair of socks and size 5 or 6 needles (either straight or circular will work). The gauge isn’t very critical but you want the fabric to be “drapey” so if you knit extra, 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.

Don’t forget to bring your show and tell items!

We hope to see you at the November/December meeting on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1st!
