July Must Be Shawl Month

Numbers were low but knitting skills were high at the July meeting.

Cindyʼs sparkly sideways-knit shawl
Joanʼs Seeds to Flowers Cowl
Joyʼs Batad cowl
Patʼs latest prayer shawl
Joan said she is happily using German short rows on a current project. You can barely see where the turns are. You can search for tutorials on this handy technique.
