February Program

February 10
Brioche class with JC Briar!!
Two hours is a little short for a brioche class but JC accepted the challenge! During the class we’ll make a small item, such as wristers or a coffee-cup holder. She will also provide instructions for a full cowl in the class handouts.
Each class participant will need the following supplies:

smooth, plain, worsted-weight yarn in two colors
size US 7 (4.5mm) needles for working in small rounds (a set of dpns, a pair of circulars, or one long “Magic Loop” circular)
stitch marker to mark the beginning of rounds
crochet hook roughly size G

February Minutes

We had a large group this time around.  Our subject this month was beading.  We had training on the different ways of adding beads into your knitted projects.  In addition to the handouts we have a few links that people suggested for your information as well.

 Connie Paulson brought in JC Briar’s new book on chart reading.  If you want a copy and did not get it Saturday, you can contact Connie.  (Membership roster is attached).

First weekend in March is the Portland Yarn Crawl – 16 shops and a great map on the web site.  www.portlandyarncrawl.com

Our web page is now up and has content.  www.millstreamknitting.com  We have tabs on the top of the page.  One is for events, I have posted all the upcoming events for the year, with their web links.  On the right side there are links to Ravelry, Yarn and Pattern places.

We will add a page link at the top to list upcoming topics for our monthly meetings.

On Saturdays we have found a place to knit, Broadway Commons Coffee Shop at 1300 Broadway Street NE.  9:00AM – Noon.  We will be meeting here all but the 2nd Saturday of the month.  We are hoping to get a big group to come join us and anyone who needs help with knitting or a project could get help at this time as well.
