It's summer (finally!) in Minnesota, so let's celebrate that warm weather with a lovely INDOOR picnic and lots of knitting. We will have food catered by Byerly's, some drinks, and even some treats. We would also like to see what you are knitting. So please bring a work-in-progress (WIP) to share. You can share with us how your current knit is going, or not going? If you are getting bitten by your knitten then hopefully a little support from your fellow knitters will be just the thing to get that WIP off the needles!
We can't wait to see your knitting, ahhhh....actually you!
July Northern Lights Meeting View Details
Let's jut have a big old SHOW and TELL. For example:
Bring Your Own Boo Boos.
Long time UFOs that never end.
Something you knit a gazillion years ago and still use/love.
Something you are working on now.
Something that is driving you crazy for one reason or another.
Myrna Stahman will be our guest speaker with a presentation on lace knitting. Myrna lives in Boise, Idaho with her husband Bob and enjoys sharing her love of lace knitting by designing shawls and scarves, teaching lace knitting classes and publishing her designs. Her definition of lace knitting is using two sticks and some string to connect a series of holes in a pleasing fashion. Lace knitting does not require 000 needles and very fine thread. Worsted weight cotton and size 7 needles make practical, pretty lace dishcloths. Bulky yarn and size 11 needles produce beautiful lacy afghans.
In addition to a general discussion of lace knitting, Myrna will share some of her adventures while working on her next book: Adventures in Circular Lace Knitting - A Window Into the Designs Published by Christine Duchrow. She will also do some show and tell with items that will be in the book. If time permits, she will also talk just a bit about Dreaming of Shetland, the e-book supporting Deb Robson's research into the Shetland breed of sheep, and will bring samples of two of the designs that will be in that book - a stole and a Faroese-shaped shawl. Join us for this fun and informative presentation.
