HYBRID Program starts at 7 p.m.

Our meeting is hybrid so we can stay connected to our fiber community. 
Anne Berk, the author of Annetarsia Knits, will introduce new methods for knitting intarsia patterns, including techniques for knitting flat and in the round for both stockinette and garter stitch projects. Intarsia offers opportunities for using color to create beautiful “painted” designs in knitting, which result in lightweight fabrics that are ideal for garments. Anne’s techniques help knitters get around some of the disadvantages of intarsia, such as the awkwardness of managing yarn and dealing with all of the ends. Anne is a nationally known knitting designer, teacher, and author.
