Combining Yarns part 2

This meeting started as usual with members arriving, paying their entrance fee, getting a cup of tea or coffee, reading the newsletter, and, this time, renewing their membership of the Guild of Machine Knitters.

Then, after a few notices, we were off with a visual reminder of how the different stitches are formed on the machine.

Then Kathy gave us an accomplished demonstration of multi-coloured tuck and slip stitch on her Brother machine.

The pattern this month uses the slip stitch technique for a cardigan:

Pat followed with another capable demonstration fair isle and then punch lace on the Knitmaster.

and Ali showed us her poncho, using a locked card to produce this great design.


And, finally, we had a slide show of knitting using multicolour techniques.
