Anatomy of a Sock 
Thursday, February 14, 2019
Fremont United Methodist Church
2620 NE Fremont Street
 
Doors open at 6 for social knitting and snacks. Program begins at 7.  

Socks! Socks! And more socks!

Expert sock knitter Emily Devlin, a.k.a. FairweatherKnits, will explore the many options and techniques for casting on, binding off, working heels and toes, and making size adjustments. Which bind off is really the stretchiest? Top down? Toe up? Afterthought heel? What about the spiral rib pattern with such a close fit making a heel is unnecessary? Emily will lead us through the many choices of knitting a sock and she will share her favorites.  

 
Also Joining Us...

You Don't Want to Miss This!

Of course, we'll start of the meeting with a look at what's happening in the fiber community. So many classes, trunk shows, fiber sales, and workshops. We'll finish up the evening with Show & Tell. Bring your recent finished objects - the glorious and the epic fails.

Diversity Knit Nights

To better serve our local fiber community, we are hosting monthly knit nights focusing on how we can bring more diversity into our programming, membership, and within the community itself. Our goal for each knit night is to leave with action items, and to encourage ongoing engagement.

We meet the second Monday of every month. All are welcome!

 
First meet up is:
Monday, February 11, 6:30 PM

At our regular meeting space:

Fremont United Methodist Church, 2620 NE Fremont St, Portland

It was a fabulous day. The morning session was an interactive lecture while the afternoon session offered more hands on opportunities and one-on-one feedback.
 
Catch Up

If you missed the January meeting, we missed you! Designer, teacher, and fashion maven Renate Yerkes (Elephino PDX) walked us through an overview, history, and some inspiration on Double Knitting, an emerging technique that yields a dense, warm, two-sided knit. You can read a summary here. Thank you, Angela, for the beautiful blog post as well as an awesome tip for keeping one's needles organized.
