The July & August Pattern Calendar is set with Supply Lists and types of patterns featured each week. "Knit with Designer Forum" is being set up. Details on how to access the room will be sent out closer to the date.

We are going to explore laces, intarsia, cables, knitting in the round, shaped cloths dish or wash cloths,big cloths, little cloths, baby cloths, anything that can be knitted and more! Tutorials and Knit- A-Long's on Knitting from charts for lace, texture, cable and intarsia. How to create charts
from basic pen and paper to various programs.

Cloth of the Week will be your favorite group!

We plan to run a WEEKLY knit-along Patterns will be given in it's entireity- not in daily postings. Once a week a new pattern is posted to the members and put on file. Files for pics of the cloths will be separate to insure those that enjoy knitting mystery cloths can continue and those who work with a picture can download the pic file.

Along with some of the cloths will be tutorials to help those new to the technique achieve professional results.

Owners of this list are: Maggie Pringlemeir- DRMAGGIE@aol.com and Maile Mauch- KeepnUinStitchS@aol.com

Why knit Cloths?? Great to learn new stitches, try out new patterns and why not have something beautiful to use?

..a knitted cozy on the teapot, the cotton dishrags that Gran had stitched together and actually used. ( A good texture pattern gives better scrubbing action, she told Dakota conspiratiorially. A pattern should be, at its core, a practical plan for achieving a goal.)

Memories in the Needles, Yarns and knitting tools

You may look and say whoah she has needles!! They are memories to me, some I will not part with for they were given to me from friends now in heaven knitting, some from my tutu, grandmother, friends who became family- my ohana. Each curve of the needle, every worn spot has a memory. If they could only tell the story.

Some do tell the story.

My grandmother got these needles to knit socks for soldiers in WW2, they are marked with bands representing inches...they are worn, missing needles...they still talk..

Make a cap or two or dozen...Write the President...

My students will be making caps to send. Last year we made 50+ blankets of cotton and quilts for Ushinda Orphanage in Kakamega Kenya Africa, 100 kites painted and 25 afghans in cotton for an Orphanage in Mexico. Our goal is the same.
