Knitting in different directions
Before we started with the main event, we watched a slide show of the Guild of Machine Knitters annual meeting, and had a presentation to deliver, as Lynn Timmins stole the show with her wonderful knitting: seen below, she won the Alison Lee Award, the Creativity Cup and the Members’ Choice.
Pat presented her with the trophy, and various prizes, including a knitting machine!
After that excitement, we settled down to the three demonstration tables, where Pat, Kathy and Lynda demonstrated various techniques, including Pat showing an Ann Lavene pattern and how to knit parts of it; Kathy and Lynda showed how to knit the latest club pattern
all of which involves various uses of holding position/ partial knitting.
Modular knitting was also touched upon, including joining techniques.
