January Minutes

This month we had Stephonia Fergosi our local artisan dyer.  Stephonia spoke about how to dye yarn. She uses an acid dye method for her yarn dyeing.  We learned about kettle dyed yarns and controlling the coloring in the dyeing process. Her tip to us was that the shorter the sections, the less pooling that will occur.  She also talked about the afterthought heel for socks to get a different look when Knitting a sock with hand painted yarns.  Here is a link to a video for the heel  http://www.theknitgirllls.com/wordpress/index.php/2011/03/tutorial-series-afterthought-heel/ This is a Pattern link to go to on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/afterthought-heel-socks 

February’s meeting Our Chiropractor, Colleen McDonough will be coming to speak to us about how to keep our back, hands and arms healthy to keep on knitting.
