The July Tuesday Night Program was another fun filled night for the Stockinettes! The program agenda this month was learning how to make mitered squares to make a Sock Yarn Blanket.
The program night was led by Cindi Unmack. Cindi's very own Sock Yarn Blanket has inspired many other Stockinette Knitters to join the fun of knitting a Sock Yarn Blanket.
Here's what Michele C. had to say about the Program:
Tuesday evening’s program started with the “Great Wee Ball Swap”.
Everyone put their “wee balls” on the table, looked around, started pointing and the ooos and aaahs began. Who knew there were so many beautiful sock yarns to choose from; every color you can imagine. Everyone walked around the table selecting “wee balls” for their own projects and couldn’t wait to get started knitting them.
Cindi explained the concept of a mitered square, explained how to get started and everyone took off. After making two squares Cindi demonstrated how to pick up stitches and add in the third square. There was quite a bit of discussion on whether the blankets should have “innees” or “outees” but everyone knew what they wanted. By the end of the evening some ladies were already pulling out their sample squares and starting a “project.”
Cindi had patterns for other mitered square project (think slippers, socks and scarves).
It was an evening filled with fun and we can’t wait to see all those mitered square projects at the August meeting.
Thank you Michele for your fabulous report!
Thank you to Cindi Unmack for leading another fun filled Tuesday Night Program.
