September 2010 saw the return of Sue Booth, this time to demonstrate tuck stitch.

She began with the rudiments:

showing us which stitches tuck [blanks]  and which do not [holes]

then went on to remind us about pushing the rubber wheels into position on the Brother machines.

Then we were treated to a proficient demonstration of various techniques related to tuck.  She used card 1 to demonstrate basic tuck and variations:

and then went on to shadow knitting, multi coloured tuck, plating, tuck lace, scallops and braids.

These are some of the samples we saw being knitted - all in all quite stimulating, and to top it off, she challenged us to play with knitting with some of these techniques on a variety of punch cards!  That should keep us busy until our next meeting in November, when we show each other what we have been knitting throughout the year.

Stop Press reminder - Knit and Natter next month - Saturday 16th October - replaces usual meeting.  See you there!
