Steeking Workshop (starting Nov 24)

Rowan_Izmir 2_0

Want to steek this “Izmir” Cardigan from Rowan Magazine 54?

Two 2-hour classes; $40 + tax & supplies

Steeking is a short cut (literally) for making large projects like sweaters.  The entire piece is first knitted in the round without interruptions or openings.  After the tube is completed, you cut into the fabric for armholes, necklines, and front openings.  Sleeves are then attached.

Intrigued?  This workshop aims to make this technique less intimidating.   Susan will also show you how to modify back-and-forth Fair Isle patterns for steeking. Bring a Fair Isle pattern of your choice and prepare to be amazed!!

You’ll need to bring to class wool or wool blend in sport or light worsted weight in a few contrasting colors with appropriately sized DPNs or circular needles.  We’re always happy to help you select yarn for a project (such as the “Izmir” cardigan on the right) that’s best suited for steeking.

Sock Club (Ongoing)

$25 Annual Fee

Our Sock Club welcomes all sock knitters. A non-refundable $25 annual fee allows you to:

  • Join our monthly meeting from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on the second Friday of every month, and
  • Purchase any one 100g ball or two 50g balls of sock yarn (enough to make one adult pair) at 15% off during the monthly meeting.

Theresa George will host these monthly meetings. The Club welcomes all sock knitters who knit 1 pair a year or 1 pair a week (although we suspect that number will go up significantly with the discounted sock yarn you can buy every month). A sock yarn and pattern will be featured at each month’s meeting. We’ll exchange sock knitting tips and other great patterns members have come across, show off our beautiful socks, and we’ll sit and knit socks!
