Sue Booth – Intarsia
Sue did not disappoint with this comprehensive look at intarsia and related skills.
She used various methods to knit with several colours in each row:
· an intarsia carriage
· knitleader/ holding position/ slip stitch/ knitting pieces separately and then joining whilst knitting/ and
· using lettering
And then she showed us ‘magic’ fairisle.
A full house watched with full concentration and enthusiasm. Let us hope that we all go home and practise these skills!
We introduced a new feature this month: a written programme, with news and events listing, as well as classified ads. If you missed it, you can get it by clicking on this link.
There is also a new pattern written by June, a club member[see below].
