February 2017

This meeting focused on different ways to cast off, finish edges and seams.

Pat demonstrated on the Knitmaster and the Hague linker, and showed us how to cast off round the gate pegs, with a linker on the machine and with the Hague linker. She also recapped on the edging she used for her Crescent shawl, shown in the September 2015 newsletter.

Lynda used the Brother to show how to cast off with the latch tool, how to start and finish with a frill and how make an automatic fringe, which was featured on this month’s project [details in newsletter here].

 

Grafting, using a Hairpin Lace join and other ways of seaming were also covered.
