Top Down Sweaters for a Perfect Fit

Kay Hopkins

of Knit for the Soul
Thursday, November 12th, 2020
Virtual Program starts at 7 p.m.

Our meeting is virtual so we can stay connected to our fiber community. 
Kay strives to design simply elegant knitwear that is fun to make and to wear.  She's a big fan of seamless and top-down designs so that they can be tried on for that perfect fit as you go and to prevent unfortunate fit surprises at the end. She'll share a bit about how she got started, how she does it, and some stories along the way.

In November, Kay is donating at least 50% of proceeds from the Forest Mosaic Shawl and the Forest Mosaic Cowl pattern sales to benefit those in need from the devastating wildfires on the West Coast.
CLICK HERE to join the meeting via ZOOM on Thursday, 11/12.

Butterfly Boxes, started by Puddletown member Adrienne and her sister-in-law, helps welcome refugees and asylum seekers to Oregon. Toys should be huggable and washable. Keep in mind that most of the refugees are people of color, and dolls' skin tones should reflect their image.

DECEMBER MEETING:  
Lori Patterson of Abstract Fiber Discusses Understanding Yarn Through Hand Spinning

In this talk, Lori will provide a clear roadmap for learning about hand spinning yarn and how it can help you get to know your yarn that much better.
JANUARY MEETING:  
Cecelia Campochiaro Gives Us an Introduction to Sequence Knitting and Making Marls
