May Meeting Minutes
A group went to Ewethful Fiber Farm and Mill in Halsey, while the rest of the group met at the Willamette Heritage Center and enjoyed some knitting and good conversation.
Judith shared her Ripples Make Waves hat by Casapinka. It’s a beautiful hat, and the pattern is free, but she encourages everyone to donate the price of a pattern to a charity doing work in Ukraine. Charity suggestions are included in the pattern.
Aran Learn Along
The Aran Learn Along continues. Su Fennern is leading the Salem Millstream Knitting Guild (SMKG) in a year-long Learn Along of Aran knitting stitches, in the form of a sampler scarf. Each month, we get a new stitch. May was the Irish Moss Stitch, and June is the middle neck ribbing section. More information and all the monthly patterns are on the Guild’s Learn Along page.
Join us at the Willamette Heritage Center on June 11 from 10 a.m. to noon on the first floor of the Mill building.
This month, we’ll learn techniques to help make things for the Coral Reef Project. Marsha Graciosa will share with us how to knit little things. She has made many little gnomes and animals and will share with us her secrets to connect arms and legs to bodies.
Kathy Goebel will show how to knit corkscrews (wiggly worms). They are often used as decorations on top of hats. She will also show us how to make a knit rose that can be used for a flower on a hat. The knit rose just so happens to look like it could come from under the sea.
Please bring things to show that you have made for the Coral Reef Project. Also, if you have found a great different pattern for something let us know. Also bring some yarn and needles, so you can try out some of these things.
Check out the Coral Reef Project on the Salem Millstream Knitting Guild website, including a selection of patterns – both knit and crochet.
Su will also talk about the neck area of our Learn Along scarves. If you need help using doubled pointed needles or magic loop let us know.
