Visiting Machine Knitting ~ Thank you Marlene

The July 12th meeting of our guild was fun and informative.  Marlene covered quite a bit of information on knitting machines.  What can be done on a totally manual machine, the difference between a punchcard driven machine and a computer driven machine and the advantages and disadvantages of all of them.  She also confessed she may be adding to her rapidly growing collection again soon.  I also enjoyed watching the link posted after the meeting  that featured Mariette Harley in a 1990’s “infomercial”  for a knitting machine.

We had some door prize drawings.  I have to confess I wasn’t right on the ball with the photos,  but I am working up to it.  Kathi donated a skein of some green/blue  handspun BFL.  Kaleen donated a a nice gradient colored scarf kit.  Congrats to the winners.

And of course we had our Show and Tell:

There were a few folks missing this month mostly due to traveling for family vacations.  You were missed.  I know you are having a great time.  Hope to see you next month.   We will be learning about Brioche knitting.  Next meeting date is August 9th.

 

So here we are

Almost the end of June and am praying the weather will stay like this for 12 more weeks.  I don’t think we will be that lucky, so get out and enjoy it while you can.

So in updating our site,  I ran across a folder of photos labeled April.  Checking the info on the files, they are indeed from April, April 12th, 2014 to be exact.  The meeting was one week after our 1st Knitting Expo ..   We had lots of new faces join us at the April meeting…

and that was great.

 

I will be making a post on the Expo soon.. Stay tuned.
