February Guild Meeting

Knit From Your Heart!

The February Guild Meeting was all about hearts, love, red and knitting.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, there was an obvious holiday heart theme to this February meeting!

Nina's "Falling in Love" Scarf

The monthly challenge due at the February Meeting was "Knit From The Heart".

Guild members were challenged to knit projects that were "knit from the heart". This naturally included heart motif projects, knits for someone you love or knitting that you love. There was a wonderful array of knit challenges showcased at the meeting including Nina's adorable "Falling in Love" heart scarf knit in Jojoland cashmere!

We Love Red!

The Stockinettes love the color Red!

There was a lot of red worn at the February meeting.

Community Service Knitting!

Veterans Lap Robes

At the February meeting it was quite evident that the Stockinette members "knit from their hearts" and give generously to local community service projects! The Stockinettes donate Veterans Lap Robes, Preemie Baby Hats and Chemo Caps on a regular monthly basis.


All About Hearts!

Anne's All Heart Shawl

Stockinette member Anne T. really took the monthly challenge to heart. Her All Heart Shawl was the show stopper of the meeting. Her project was definitely "knit from the heart" and for someone she loves...her Mother. This adorable heart motif wrap is from Nicky Epstein's book Knitting A Kiss In Every Stitch.

To create her All Heart Shawl, Anne enlisted the help of her two sisters (living in Paris and Seattle) to knit as many hearts as they could in varying sizes both in stockinette and seed stitch. Anne joined the hearts into the wrap and is now sending it off to her mother for Valentine's Day.

Anne says "Mom's a knitter and a quilter so she will love it". We know she will, too!
