Seaming lesson for the June Guild Meeting

To all members interested in learning some seaming techniques, there will be a tutorial at the June meeting. To participate, knit a 10" square using worsted weight washable yarn. Any color, variegated, novelty, whatever is in your stash. Naomi used Plymouth Encore from her stash and got a gauge of 4 sts to the inch using a size 8 US needle. Others may need to change needle size. She cast on 40sts. You may want to dampen and dry the square to have flat edges for easier seaming. Bring the squares to the meeting and we can practice seaming them together. Who knows, we may produce a blanket at the meeting for some lucky child.
