This month our technique is the linen stitch, using an A,B,C color method. The pattern includes instruction for “Kitchen Trio”  of coasters, hotpads and placemats. The Linen stitch video will demonstrate the color changes. It  is a great stitch for using up your stash yarn, but if you still need more, Soft Cotton from Tahki Stacy Charles is the yarn used in the sample. As in months before, this yarn will be available for you at 20% off.

We usually meet the 2nd Sunday of the month, but because the design workshop is in conflict, we’ll be meeting the 3rd Sunday instead. Yes, I do know it’s Father’s day, but it can’t be avoided. I’ll be away the last two weekends. We’ll be meeting June 16th at the shop from 3:00 to 5:00pm.  Anyone that wants to join us by skype, please let me know.

Our recipe this month is for  Schaum Torte.

As always, please do me a big favor and go over to the forums.  Sign in and introduce yourselves if you haven’t done so already! It’s also a place where you can share your progress and ask questions. Some of you have even posted photos for us all to see and that’s always fun, too!

And remember, I’m always listening for suggestions of future projects and techniques.
