Knit One Below Class

First, many thanks to Lisa for pulling this class together for us. Now, the details:

Tuesday, February 14
Rainier Manor

Meeting on Valentine’s Day! Lisa will open the Rainier Manor club house at 8:30 a.m. for those who would like to get settled before class begins. She will provide coffee, tea, cream, sugar, and a sweet treat (feel free to bring your own treats to share). She will have disposable cups but she encourages everyone to bring their own coffee/tea cup. Lisa will pay a $50 deposit to use the club house; this will be returned to her when we leave the room as we found it; that is, chairs and tables put away and everything cleaned up, swept up, trash emptied, bathrooms clean, etc.

Milly Skutley from Ben Franklin Crafts in Bonney Lake will be available for us from 9 a.m. to noon. The class project is a Knit One Below scarf. Milly will provide the pattern for the scarf and matching hat.



The cost per attendee is $12, payable on the day of the meeting. Ben Franklin Crafts Bonney Lake is donating 50% of our class fee to the Bonney Lake Food Bank

Supplies:
  • Two skeins worsted weight yarn, approximately 220 yards each. The project samples were made with one skein of Cascade 220 Superwash and two skeins of Lion Brand Amazing. You can use two solids or a solid and a stripe or whatever combo you like. Milly said she made the class sample with a man in mind and was able to get both a hat and scarf out of the one skein of Cascade 220 and two skeins of Lion Brand Amazing.
  • Size 8 knitting needles
Lisa would like to know about how many people to expect for the class. Please let her know if you plan to attend.

Milly was kind enough to say you can work on your own project instead of the class project.

Need yarn? The Ben Franklin Bonney Lake is having a Cascade Yarn event this month.

The summer 2009 Knitter’s magazine has a scarf and beret patterns for the knit-one-below technique.
